BROWNSVILLE, Brooklyn (PIX11) — A Parks Department employee was repeatedly struck with a metal folding chair at a Brooklyn pool Saturday morning, officials said.

The staffer, a 30-year-old woman, was using a leaf blower to clear the front of the Betsy Head Pool facility in Brownsville when she was hit with the chair multiple times at around 8 a.m., according to a Parks Department source and police. The victim was taken to the hospital in stable condition, the source said.

The suspect fled on foot, police said.

“Our staff suffering violent assaults is simply appalling,” said a Parks Department spokesman.

The agency was working with the NYPD in its investigation. Police had not released a description of the attacker, as of Monday, and no arrests had been made.
