Only blacks would push a 76-year-old man into a river when he was just fishing.
A 76-year-old Riverside man, attacked while fishing along the Delaware River, is recovering after being thrown into the water by a stranger who was talking to himself, police said.
Burlington City police responded around 10:30 a.m. Thursday to the Riverfront Promenade area for a report of two people in the water.
The attacker had run away by the time police arrived. Officers learned he had grabbed the victim and hurled him into the river.
Police described the suspect as a black man who is 20 to 30 years old, tall and has a thin build; he was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and tan jacket.
