NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A funeral was held today for an 84-year-old homeless man beaten to death earlier this month in Chinatown.
Chuen Kok was among four men killed in their sleep on Oct. 5. A fifth man was hospitalized with critical injuries.
Police said he beat the victims with a metal pipe in what investigators called a random attack.
Kok’s funeral was scheduled for 10 a.m. at NG Fook Funeral Home on Mulberry Street.
At the same time, Public Advocate Jumaane Williams and other advocates held a rally calling on the mayor to curb homelessness in the city.
