Two men were arrested on Thursday for allegedly beating and tobbing a 60-yr old man on Ave M and E 19th in Midwood. The incident was videotaped on camera Monday. The victim was beaten so badly that he needed 70 stitches in his forehead.
Baskim Huseinovic, 19, and Eldin Sabovic, 17, were charged with robbery and assault. Police say they have not yet determined whether the assault was a hate crime. The two men both live just a few blocks from where the beating took place in Midwood.
A getaway driver has not yet been arrested, according to cops.
