New York Daily News - - NEWS - BY THOMAS TRACY With Cathe­rina Gioino

A brute blud­geoned a man with a rock dur­ing an af­ter­noon walk through Cen­tral Park, then non­cha­lantly fled the green space on a bi­cy­cle, of­fi­cials said.

Po­lice on Fri­day re­leased a sketch of the as­sailant, whose vic­tim re­mained in the hospi­tal with a head in­jury, ac­cord­ing to sources.

The vic­tim, 53, and a woman were walk­ing through the park near East Drive and E. 106th St. about 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 22 when the sus­pect crept up from be­hind and struck him in the head with a rock.

The as­sailant ran to a nearby bike, jumped on and ped­aled out of the park, wit­nesses told po­lice.

Medics rushed the vic­tim to Mount Si­naiSt. Luke’s Hospi­tal, where he was listed in crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Sources with knowl­edge of the case said the vic­tim re­mained in the hospi­tal Fri­day.

No ar­rests have been made.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this in­ci­dent is urged to call NYPD Crime Stop­pers at (800) 577TIPS. All calls will be kept con­fi­den­tial.
