Homeless man brutally attacks 6-year-old boy in front of horrified parents in New York City

A harrowing scene reportedly unfolded in Queens, New York, when a 6-year-old boy was brutally attacked by a homeless man in front of his horrified parents.
Police say the child was walking with his parents when the homeless man grabbed him and body-slammed him, hitting his head on the concrete sidewalk.
The child was rushed to a hospital with serious head and face injuries, and is listed as critical. He is expected to survive.
The 35-year-old man was not identified, but he was arrested by police soon afterward, and charges are pending an investigation. He was taken to Jamaica Hospital for a mental evaluation.
The attack comes as the city is still reeling from the shocking murders of four homeless men. Police later arrested another homeless man as a suspect in the lethal attack.
Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio has been excoriated by many for not doing enough to alleviate the homeless crisis in the city.

Here's a local news video about the attack:
