The New York Post is not giving the name of the 48-year-old construction worker who was savagely beaten by two white men, Veton Balidemaj and Klevis Vulaj, Saturday. The man was working on West 49th Street and 11th Avenue around 3:30 a.m. when the two men walked up and tried to hug him, cops said. Sources say the man shrugged off the embrace and the men lost it, calling him a “n*gger” and tackled him to the ground. They proceeded to repeatedly beat the victim while he was on the ground, including punching and kicking his face, until cops broke it up.

The hardhat went to St. Luke’s – Roosevelt Hospital for a bruised face and severe injury for his right eye, per officials. Balidemaj and Vulaj were charged with felony assault and aggravated harassment in hate crimes. They were arraigned later that same day in Manhattan Criminal Court. According to public records, Balidemaj was held on $7,000 bond or $3,5000 cash bail while Vulaj’s bail is $3,000 or $1,500 in cash.
