Cops say a man was struck in the stomach with a crossbow while walking down a Bensonhurst street late last month.

According to police, a 39-year-old man was struck with the bow by an unknown perp while walking along West 10th Street and Bay Parkway on Friday, March 24 at around 6:14 a.m. Cops say that video surveillance nearby showed a black SUV approach the victim who, moments later, stumbles to the ground, holding his stomach.

The vehicle is said to have then fled eastbound on West 10th Street.

The attack resulted into a puncture wound to the victim’s abdomen and small intestines. He was rushed to Coney Island Hospital for treatment.

A crossbow is to an arrow as a gun is to a bullet. I'm assuming this was an arrow and that no one actually threw an actual crossbow at anyone.

Just a week ago, there was a cat struck by a crossbow in the face. It was on channel 12 local news. I wonder if theses cases are related. Police should really look into these 2 cases.
