Police took a Far Rockaway resident into custody on Friday after he allegedly assaulted and robbed numerous people over a two-week span.

An employee at NYU Langone Brooklyn recognized the suspect, Luke Boynton, from news reports when he walked in to the hospital on Friday afternoon complaining about pain, sources told the New York Post. Hospital workers then contacted the cops, who came and arrested him.

Boynton, 24, kicked off his string of crimes in Far Rockaway by punching a 72-year-old man in the face and taking an undetermined amount of cash on September 30th at around 9:45pm, police said. Just a few hours later, on October 1st at 2:00 am, Boynton beat a 25-year-old male with a wooden club, eventually knocking him to the ground and taking $100 in cash, police said.

A week later, on October 9th, Boynton attacked a 65-year-old man with a stick, police said.

The victim, Victor Coello, told ABC 7 that Boynton then went through his pockets but didn't find anything.

"I took the first stick from him," Victor Coelle told ABC 7. "The second he grabbed from a garbage can and started hitting me with it."

"I couldn't fight back because I have asthma," he added.

Less than an hour later, police said Boynton punched and shoved a 41-year-old woman in an attempt to steal her purse and, only moments later, followed a 17-year-old, grabbed her shirt and told her not to scream before she gave him $5. He also allegedly punched a 44-year-old woman in the face in an attempt to steal her purse.

Police charged Boynton was charged with six counts of robbery.
