SUNNYSIDE, Queens (PIX11) — One of two men accused of violently mugging a legally blind 81-year-old man in Queens in October has been arrested.
Thomas Fullwood, 29, has been charged with robbery.
Police say the Bronx man and an accomplice punched and robbed William Eichhorn inside a Chase Bank ATM vestibule on Queens Boulevard October 26.
The thieves made off with $100 and Eichhorn’s debit card.
“It takes two cowardly individuals to hit a frail 81-year-old man,” said Mary Ann Gasparro, Eichhorn’s daughter.
The second suspect, seen in the above photo, is still at large.
