The victim told police that he was between 88th and 89th steets at 3 pm when the sword-baring suspect uttered a deranged statement.
“Come with me,” he muttered. “I am God.”
The suspect then punched victim in his face and shoved him against a brick wall, fracturing the man’s facial bones and spraining three of his fingers, cops said.
