NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An NYPD officer was attacked while jogging in Queens on Friday.

It happened near 53rd Avenue in Long Island City.

Police say the officer, who was not in uniform, was assaulted by as many as nine people.

He was taken to a local hospital with bruises to his neck, head, shoulder and knee.

There’s no word on a motive, but police say another jogger was attacked by a group of people Thursday.

    Amazing use of so few words to cover two stories. Hey CBS, get rid of that old eye logo. Replace it with an ostrich

    no need to say it. we already know.

  3. Verdi Lowe says:

    When did the mythical Freedom…of Speech, totally disappear from MSMedia America ?

  4. And how many of the assailants are laying on a morgue slab?

    1. Sam Green says:

      None of them deserve to be in a morgue, but all of them deserve to be sitting in a jail cell.

      I wish this officer for a speedy recovery.

      1. Vinnie says:

        I disagree. Is nine people attack a complete stranger who is out jogging, they should be euthanized like the rabid animals they are.

  5. Sam Hensley says:

    Just sreggin being sreggin. Nothing new.

  6. LA NUKKA says:

    NYPD arent even cops anymore since Deblasio completely defunded + neutered them. Theyre basically just school crossing guards or hall monitors at best. NYPD are CLOWNs

    Just more evidence NYC is slipping into a third-world dump run by communists and minorities

    Monkees

  9. Jack McCready says:

    Nine on one. Can anybody guess the description?

  10. Ann Ryan says:

    Is there a discription of the cowardly attackers? Oh, never mind!

  11. carlmelcher1 says:

    No description of the officer, no description of the perps. Maybe it was a gang of nuns or Amish. The run in packs.

  12. Kate Frederickson says:

    Who really knows if anything you read or see on the news is real anymore? Might just be filler for some sloppy lazy news employee who would rather just make something up and put it in as news.

    1. Leon says:

      Sad but true. why wasn’t the cop armed?

      1. mike says:

        He’s jogging. You don’t jog with a gun.

      2. Mike says:

        This was planned. Someone knew who he was and his jogging route. Motive unknown? Oh please.

    2. John Mc Innes says:

      So true Kate! In fact if he’s not in uniform is it really an attack on a cop at all?

  13. Bryn says:

    Doesn’t that happen to people all the time walking around in cities like that? My friend got attacked like that walking around in Baltimore and the police didn’t seem to care. Guessing we are only hearing about this because he was a off duty police officer?

  14. Gordon Wagner says:

    Obamas?

    1. Gamera says:

      Obama’s sons

  15. Lou says:

    No off duty piece? There should have been 9 bodies left.
