Markey Hayden Bena Again Beaten While Sleeping Alone on the Street . This Time on 9th Street .

Markey Bena , noticeably in pain , walked with difficulty to the infamous phone booth at 7th street and avenue A known in our local sector of the blogosphere as the "Pee Phone " . The booth would provide a much needed , if unaesthetic , seat for Markey . We had been talking to Markey who was tiring and in pain and needed a place to sit and rest . Markey had only been out of the hospital for a few days and was not at all well . According to Markey , 9 days ago at 2 am Markey , while trying to sleep on 9th street just around the corner from Doc Holiday's , was beaten with a wooden dowel used as a club and kicked by 4 young males dressed in white .

We wrote of Markey recently , May 15 , and another beating that he suffered on the night of May 8th , the same night that Lesia Pupshaw and 2 males were severely beaten in Tompkins Square Park .On that night there were witnesses to the attack on Markey that confirmed the details of the attack that he related to us . There were no witnesses to this most recent attack ;we only have Markey's account of this most recent beating of 9 days ago .

Early Monday morning , 29 June , Markey was trying to sleep on the sidewalk . 4 males in their late teens and 1 female companion approached . The 4 males dressed in white and wearing "Doc Martens " , 2 of them wearing black bowler hats , began to beat with a wooden club and kick Markey . Markey at one point referred to his attackers as "Droogs" , the young sociopaths from "A Clock Work Orange". Marky claims that he believes he heard his attackers speeking Portuguese . Markey claims the female companion , dressed in lacy white attire , also laughed loudly as her companions battered and kicked Markey . Markey became unconscious early in the attack and remembers nothing further other than waking somewhat later at Belleview Hospital .

At Belleview Markey was treated , his hair was sheared and his scalp sewn and stapled . Markey claimed that his body is covered with numerous contusions and abrasions . Markey spent the better part of 3 days in hospital .

While there is no doubt that Markey was severely beaten in the street we have no other witnesses than Markey to confirm the details of his "Clock Work Orange-esque" account of the beating .

This Tuesday evening at Ray's Candy Store Markey was accompanied by a friend who was looking after him . His friend was trying to get Markey off the street . She finally took a still weak and wounded Markey by cab back to the hospital for more medical attention .
