A Yeshiva Bochur has been hospitalized with a head injury, after being viciously assaulted & robbed on a Waterbury street.
Sources tell YWN that the incident happened around 11:30PM, Sunday night, at the intersection of Cooke Street and Pine Street, when three black males approached the 21-year-old Yeshiva Bochur and demanded his cell phone. They beat his head with a baseball bat, took his phone and fled on foot. The Waterbury Police Department and Waterbury Hatzolah were dispatched to the scene, but waited close to 15 minutes for an ambulance from AMR to be able to transport him to the hospital.
He was taken to St Marys Hospital, where he is in stable condition, and being treated for head trauma.
Police are investigating the incident, and no arrests have been made.
