Excerpted from PIX11: A 62-year-old man who was brutally attacked in Union Square last week has died.

On Wednesday, a man shouting that he “hated white people” punched victim Jeffrey Babbitt in the face, witnesses said, causing him to fall and strike his head on the ground so hard he ended up in a coma at Bellevue Hospital.

His assailant, identified as Lashawn Marten, 31, “made statements to the effect that I’m going to punch the first white man that I see,” said NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.

After punching Babbitt, Marten allegedly attacked two other men who came to Babbitt’s aid, police said. Police were investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.

Marten has been charged with the assault and is due back in court on Tuesday.

Marten’s charges will likely be upgraded.
