NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A 67-year-old man was brutally beaten in a Bronx elevator this weekend in a shocking attack caught on surveillance video, police said.

The man was targeted Friday night at an apartment building near Southern Boulevard and East 187 Street in the Belmont section.

Police said the suspect fled the building in a dark-colored minivan.

The victim suffered cuts to his face and was taken to James J. Peters VA Medical Center in stable condition.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
