Police sources tell TOT that it appears that both men who were seen in the surveillance video assaulting the man were taken into custody on Thursday evening.

As TOT reported earlier this week, On Monday, December 28, 2015 at 12:48AM, a 55 year-old male victim was walking in front of 809 Avenue M when two male suspects approached him from behind.

The victim was treated and released at Maimonides Hospital for scratches and contusions to head, knees and hands.

Thanks to the diligent and persistent work of the NYPD, both men are in custody. Special thanks to the NYPD Patrol Boro Brooklyn South Chief Steven Powers, the Detective Bureau Chief Conry, Chief Eric Rodriguez and Lieutenant Ira (Yitzy) Jablonsky.
