A man with a bat beat a bicyclist in the street in Brooklyn. One person stepped in to stop it, but otherwise, no one cared. People just walked by.

Police told WINS-AM the 54-year-old victim was riding his bike in the vicinity of Flatbush and Parkside Avenues around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when the unprovoked attack occurred.

Soon NYPD officers spotted a crowd, walked over, and witnesses identified a suspect who was standing nearby, the New York Daily News said. He was taken into custody.

Ashanti Robinson, 46, is facing charges of assault, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon, WINS said. He’s a criminal with 14 priors and doesn’t know the victim.
