Police are looking for a man who they say attacked his friend with a hammer in an odd incident in the Bronx early Friday morning.

The NYPD released the above photo of the suspect, Michael DiLello.

The victim, a 41-year-old man, told his wife he was going to meet a friend, who police say was DiLello.

He returned to his home in Schuylerville about three hours later with bumps, bruises and cuts on his head.

The victim then told his wife he loved her before going unconscious.

Police say he was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

DiLello is 43 years old and is described as 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds.

Police say they don't know what prompted the altercation.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
