Man Robbed Of $100K In Midtown Attack

Walking around with that kind of cash on you is just asking for trouble.

A gunman dragged a man down a sidewalk, beating him with a pistol, after fighting over a black bag in front of a Starbucks cafe blocks from Central Park on Friday, police and witnesses said.

Sounds like someone knew what was in the black bag.

The victim, a man in his 50s, was hospitalized in stable condition after the attack, which happened just after 2 p.m. three blocks south of the park near Sixth Avenue and 56th Street. The New York Police Department said he may have been grazed by a bullet or pistol-whipped in the head; some witnesses said a gunman shot him in the street before fleeing.

I really want someone to explain to me why this man had $100K on him. I barely have 20 bucks in my wallet.

Based on preliminary information, it appeared as though the victim had just withdrawn tens of thousands of dollars from a nearby bank, a law enforcement source told

I'd look over those bank videos.

Witnesses said they saw the two men fighting over a black duffel bag in front of the cafe. The younger man then dragged the victim -- who was clinging to the bag -- down the street, beating him in the head with the gun, witnesses said.

Just let go of the bag buddy. Is your life worth $100K? Well, yeah, it probably is, but either way, the guy with the gun is always going to win those physical struggles.

Police were searching a suspect they described as a man between 25 and 30 years old who was wearing a black parka, black pants is about five feet 9 inches tall.

That should narrow the search down. Just look for the idiot who pays for a new car out of his price range in cash in the next two-three days.

so what the fuck do you think would happen, when you ask the tellier in the bank for 100G's in cash and everybody can hear you?
