NYC homeless man asks for cigarette, gets fatally bashed in head with cane: cops

A homeless man fatally bashed one other vagrant over the head with a cane in Manhattan — just because the sufferer requested for a cigarette, police mentioned Tuesday. 

Victim John Horton, 54, approached Vincent Foster, 36, on Ninth Avenue close to West forty fourth Street in Hell’s Kitchen round 3:10 p.m. Wednesday and requested for a cigarette, authorities mentioned. 

Foster responded by walloping Horton in the head with a cane, cops mentioned. It was unclear whether or not the cane belonged to the sufferer or the suspect. 

Horton was rushed with head trauma to Bellevue Hospital, the place he died two days later, police mentioned. 

Foster was arrested and charged with felony assault, cops mentioned. The district lawyer’s workplace will decide whether or not to improve the fees towards him in the wake of Horton’s dying, authorities mentioned. 

Foster was ordered held on $75,000 bail, data present. 

While in custody, he was concerned in one other battle for which he was arrested too, cops mentioned. No particulars have been instantly out there.

Horton’s final identified handle was in upstate Pleasantville, and Foster was listed at an handle in Alton, Ill., based on police.
