By Geoffrey Croft

Police are investigating an incident involving a 19-year-old Bronx man who claims he was attacked inside Ferry Point Park, adjacent to Donald Trumps new Ferry Point golf course in the Bronx, NYC Park Advocates has learned.

The man told police he was walking through Ferry Point Park West about 8 p.m. Sunday night when he was attacked and struck in the head several times with a baseball bat.

EMS transported the victim to Jacobi hospital where he was treated for cuts and bruises.

Park patrons notified PEP officers of the assault.

The victim was clearly intoxicated and very uncooperative, according to the police. 

The park is located between Schley Ave. and the Hutchinson River Parkway and is one of the city's worst maintained parks. 

Every single park safety light has been abandoned the park has no bathrooms and the feilds are dangerious.

In shart contrast, Ferry Point West is adjacent to Donald Trumps's new luxurious tax-payer funded Ferry Point golf course which is located in another section of the park.

A few hours later six people were shot in Franz Sigel Park at E. 153rd St. and the Grand Concourse early Monday morning.

On Saturday night six teens tried to rob a  77-year-old man in Central Park at gunpoint.
