MELROSE, Bronx (WABC) -- An alleged gang member will be sentenced Monday for his part in the brutal beating of a Bronx street vendor.
Octavius Profit delivered the first and last blows in the 2017 attack that put Souleymane Porgo in a coma.
Police say it started when one of the attackers tried to steal a handbag and came back with friends.
Porgo was able to recover after the attack.
Another of the attackers was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty last year.
