Two city Parks Department employees were arrested Sunday for allegedly beating up a man who was urinating in a Bronx park, police sources said.
The victim was allegedly peeing in Jerome Park, which is next to the Bronx HS of Science in Bedford Park, at about 1:30 p.m. when the two workers confronted him, according to a law-enforcement source.
On-duty workers Damian Garner, 40, and Yadhil Marrero, 41, argued with the man, police said. The two then allegedly kicked and punched him, scratching and bruising his face.
The victim was taken to Montefiore Medical Center, while the two Parks workers were hit with assault charges.
The arrests are the latest example of misbehavior in the Parks Department ranks. The Post reported on July 16 that the city is probing sex-abuse allegations against an ex-con who rakes in $105,000 as a Parks Department supervisor.
