THE BRONX -- Police are searching for at least five men after a building superintendent and his son were brutally attacked in the Bronx early Sunday morning.

The attack was caught on surveillance camera in front of a building on Davidson Avenue in the Fordham section.

Police say a group of people, including the five men who are known drug dealers in the area, were having a BBQ in front of the building.

The super’s 41-year-old son asked them to leave, an argument ensued and the men started to punch and kick.

The superintendent, 62-year-old Sylverio Serrena said in Spanish, “They hit my son but did not cut him.”
