Report: NYPD Chief Chaplain Mugged in Mayor de Blasio’s NYC


The New York Post reports 84-year-old Kass was “attacked” just before 6 a.m. as he walked “near West 107th Street and Riverside Drive.”

Responding officers said the assailant indicated he was hungry and demanded Kass hand over any money in his possession.

Kass’s wallet fell to the ground during the attack and the suspect ended up fleeing with nothing.
