EAST FLATBUSH, Brooklyn — A man is being sought for assaulting a deliveryman with a baseball bat, police said Tuesday.

It happened just before 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 8, according to police.

Daron James' delivery van was double-parked on East 46th Street in East Flatbush when another driver couldn't get by and became enraged.

The driver then got out the car and hit the 22-year-old in the head several times with a baseball bat, James' co-worker told PIX11.

James suffered head trauma and is being hospitalized.  He is in critical but stable condition, police said.

"It's so heartbreaking  because nobody should go through this," James' mother told PIX11. "His skull is bashed."

Police have released video showing a vehicle allegedly driven by the attacker, and they're asking for the public's help identifying it.

The attacker is described as being in his 40s, about 5 feet 10 inches and around 170 pounds. He was last seen driving a gray Honda Accord.
