Batter up

Two thugs, including one wielding a baseball bat, beat up a newspaper deliveryman at the corner of Fourth Avenue and 12th Street on May 22 after trying to steal the man’s car.

The 34-year-old victim told cops that he tried to stop a miscreant from swiping his vehicle at 4:44 am, but he was punched in the face. Soon after, the offender’s friend arrived and whacked the victim repeatedly with a baseball bat.

The victim was taken to Lutheran Medical Center where he received treatment.
