Man Assaulted at Greenpoint Waterfront Park at Sunset, Cops Say
GREENPOINT — A man sitting in the grass of a Greenpoint waterfront park at sunset was attacked and struck by two men with a metal rod, cops said.
The two suspects approached the man at the popular Transmitter Park Thursday at 8:30 p.m. and tried starting a "verbal dispute" that he ignored, at which the suspects "took a metal piece of rod and hit [him] on the left side of his eye causing lacerations," the police report said.
The man — who refused medical attention at the scene — identified two suspects in a line-up who were arrested Friday, cops said.
The suspects Ziggy Truszkowski, 35, and Przemysyla Premolomska, 31, were both charged with misdemeanor assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon, a spokesman from the Brooklyn District Attorney's office said.
Truszkowski's case is currently before a grand jury, and Preomolomska, who was released without bail, is awaiting a trial in Brooklyn Criminal Court. His next appearance is July 29.
Lisa Pitts, the attorney for Truszkowski, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Brooklyn Defender Services, which represented Premolomska, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
