FLUSHING, Queens – A pedestrian found at a Queens bus stop a man who was beaten so severely he cannot speak or tell doctors his name, so on Friday police asked for the public’s help to identify this mystery patient.
It was about 9 a.m. Monday when a passerby noticed the man lying at a bus stop near 46th Avenue and Auburndale Lane, police said. He was semi-conscious with cuts and signs of trauma all over his face.
The pedestrian called 911 and the victim was taken to a hospital, where he remained Friday – still with no name. Police said the man is unable to speak “due to his condition” and it’s still unknown how he suffered those facial injuries.
The mystery patient is described as an Asian male in his 50s, 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 150 pounds, police said. He was wearing a white t-shirt and a light gray Old Navy hooded sweatshirt with a wolf and the number 9 on the back.
Anyone with information in the case is urged to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
