Police were looking Monday for an attacker who assaulted another man with a hammer on a Brooklyn street last week.
It happened around 10 a.m. Thursday in front of 934 Jefferson Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Police say the victim was approached from behind and was struck several times in the head.
A friend of the victim told NY1 the 34-year-old lost an eye.
Police say it appears the victim did not know his attacker.
The hammer was recovered at the scene.
