A Queens landlord was viciously attacked yesterday after trying to collect rent from one of her tenants, according to the New York Post. Yun Zhong Sun went to her tenant’s apartment to collect rent on a Corona-area unit. Sun reportedly sat on the tenant’s bed to write up a receipt for the owed cash when the alleged attacker, 22-year-old Jasuli Abdimutel, began striking her with a metal pipe. The incident was uncovered after Sun’s husband, who was traveling outside the country and was worried when he didn’t hear from his wife, called the police. Although it is not immediately clear what condition Sun is currently in, reports indicated that she was not killed in the attack. [Post]
