McBrooklyn Photo of the Day: The 'Eat 'Em Raw' Guy Apprehended

While McBrooklyn is out of town for a week or two, we decided this would be a good time to publish some of our favorite photos. Some have been published before, but others never made it to the blogosphere.

Today's photo of the day is actually two: the scene of the crime, and the "I Eat 'Em Raw' guy apprehended.

Last June, a suit-type dad (above, wearing gray, crumpled onto the sidewalk) was blithely walking his two pre-K kids to school on Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights when a buff youngish guy swooped out of nowhere and coldcocked him -- not once, but twice.

After an almost instantaneous response by the 84th 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.

No one seemed to know why he did it, including the injured dad, who was taken to Long Island College Hospital with facial injuries and breathing problems.

The whole story here.
