This one mystified even hardened police officers.
A suit-type dad (above, crumpled onto the sidewalk) was blithely walking his two pre-K kids to school on Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights this morning when a buff youngish guy swooped out of nowhere and coldcocked him -- not once, but twice. Pedestrians screamed for the cops and the rapid response of the 84th Precinct was commendable, says everyone involved.
The alleged perp (wearing a blue T-shirt stating "I Eat 'Em Raw") was apprehended on Court Street, cuffed and spirited away in a police car, but no one seems to know why he did it, including the injured dad, who was taken to Long Island College Hospital with facial injuries and breathing problems.
UPDATE: The Brooklyn Eagle ID's the Blue T-Shirt Guy as Brian Land of Pacific Street, and provides eye-witness accounts of the incident.
