Police are searching for a man who assaulted a traffic enforcement agent Tuesday morning in the Bronx.
Investigators say Edgar Saeteros, 35, was writing a summons for a double-parked vehicle around 9 a.m. on Virginia Avenue in Parkchester when he was attacked by a driver.
The suspect ran off and Saeteros was taken to the hospital with a fractured skull.
People in the neighborhood say the attack is part of an alarming trend.
“Right now you’re getting so out of control, out of order, they start assaulting police officer. So that should tell how bad the neighborhood is getting lately,” said one Parkchester resident.
“I have no idea what they get out of beating people right now. I think they kind of enjoy it,” said another.
Anyone with information about the case is being asked to contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS, by texting TIP577 to CRIMES, or by going to NYPDCrimeStoppers.com.
