Man attacked by hatchet-wielding maniac at NYC ATM


A 51-year-old man was attacked by a hatchet-wielding maniac in the ATM vestibule of a Lower Manhattan bank on Sunday night, police sources said.

The male suspect whacked the victim in the head and thigh as he was standing in front of the cash machine at a Chase bank on Broadway near Beaver Street in the Financial District at about 5:20 p.m., sources said.

The brute fled the scene after the attack, but left the hatchet behind, according to the sources. He was still being sought late Sunday.

“The guy that got hit in the head was screaming,” a witness told The Post.

“It’s crazy. People were shouting and we saw the guy laying down — a lot of blood,” the witness said.

The victim was hospitalized in stable condition.
