ROCKVILLE CENTRE - A Rockville Centre man has his jaw wired shut and stitches across his face following what may have been a “knockout game” attack in New York City this past Sunday.
Kyle Rogers was found unconscious on the street after being attacked by an unknown assailant Sunday morning. Rogers woke up in an ambulance, unaware of what had landed him there. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
Police believe the attack was done at random.
Rogers’ father was able to locate the place he was attacked and found cameras had recorded the entire incident. The video shows Rogers being struck in the head by a man who appears to have something hard clenched in his fist. The video also appears to show another man recording the assault.
Rogers spoke with News 12 Long Island correspondent Drew Scott about the attack.
The NYPD is asking anyone who recognizes the attack to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
