CeFaan Kim, reporter at Cablevision's News 12 Westchester (NY), was the victim of an attempted mugging in Yonkers, NY while walking to work.

Kim was assaulted around 9 a.m. on March 21 while walking from a local train station. Four teens set upon him, hitting him 30-plus times in the head, before departing when motorists stopped to help.

"They were just going to town on my head," he told a News 12 colleague on air.

Police arrested the four, students at a nearby school for troubled youths, who are being charged with attempted robbery and assault.
Kim previously reported for NY 1. He suffered a broken nose in the assault.
