Wallet was stolen from Bayonne man beaten into coma by teens, police say
Beat whitey night has become a regular event. What’s up? Wonder how long whites will stay a punching bag? Have whites lost their will?
A wallet was stolen from the 22-year-old Bayonne man who was savagely beaten by a pack of youths last Sunday after he tried to help a person he knew that the mob was harassing, police said.
So far five teens — two girls, ages 14 and 17, and three 16-year-old boys — have been arrested in connection with the brutal beating of Dawid Strucinski.
Strucinski has been in a coma at the Jersey City Medical Center ever since the attack that occurred at about 3 a.m. July 3 near the Quick Chek at 12th Street and Broadway.
Bayonne Deputy Police Chief Ralph Scianni said this morning that as one of the 16-year-old boys knocked Strucinski to the ground, another riffled through his pockets and grabbed his wallet.
The wallet has not been recovered and it is not clear what items it contained, Scianni said.
The three 16-year-old Bayonne boys are all charged with aggravated assault, endangering a victim, and rioting, and one of them is additionally charged with second-degree theft, Scianni said. The teen girls are both charged with endangering an injured victim and with rioting, he said.
A complaint has been issued against a 15-year-old boy in connection to the attack and police are still searching for him, Scianni said.
Police have said that a total of nine boys and four girls were involved in the attack on Strucinski, a recent Rutgers University graduate in criminal justice who aspires to be an FBI agent, according to his friends.
Strucinski, who suffered severe head trauma, remains in a coma, his friend, Steve Grau, 23, said this morning.
Grau and others held a fund-raiser for Strucinski and his family Friday to help defray medical costs. Grau said this morning they raised roughly $20,000.
