An off the clock NYPD cop on his approach to work was ruthlessly attacked by a gathering of youngsters in Penn Station, after the casualty recognized himself as an officer, authorities and sources said.
The 33-year-old cop, distinguished by sources as Officer Cagney Ramos and appointed to the World Trade Center Command in Lower Manhattan, had quite recently gotten off the Long Island Rail Road around 6:30 a.m. Saturday when a gathering of teenagers started hitting his knapsack and flicking the baseball top off his head, authorities said.
After Ramos distinguished himself as a NYPD cop, the suspects punched and kicked him to the ground, and spit on him before running off, specialists said. Doctors took Ramos to a close by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital with minor wounds and profound slices to his face, ear and arm. No captures have been made. The MTA Police Department was examining the ambush.
