"Man punched in the face in Union Square hate attack dies at Bellevue Hospital
Authorities say 62-year-old Jeffrey Babbitt (l.) has died less than a week after he was assaulted by a man who threatened to 'punch the first white man' he saw.
A white man who was punched in the face in Union Square by a black man who was spewing anti-white sentiment died early Monday at Bellevue Hospital, a police source said.
Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, fell into a coma after he was randomly attacked Wednesday afternoon by a man who was yelling,Im going to punch the first white man I see!
Lashawn Marten, 31, was arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault in the attack. The unprovoked punch knocked Babbitt backward, and he hit his head on the ground.
The attack took place in Union Square Park.
Babbitt lived in Brooklyn and was caregiver to his mother, who has Alzheimers disease, neighbors said.
After Marten assaulted Babbitt, he attacked two men who tried to help the stricken man, and then challenged two responding cops, officials said.
Marten is being held on $1 million bail. Charges against him will likely be upgraded."
I doubt the victim was the first white man he saw. I think it was probably the first old, feeble, defenseless white man he saw.
