A pair of hammer-swinging fiends attacked a man on 14th Avenue on March 5, police said.
The victim told police he was walking toward 86th Street from Benson Avenue around 11 pm when he got into an argument with the two men. It escalated into a life-or-death situation when one of the two brutes whipped out a hammer and whacked the victim across the head with it, according to authorities.
Soon after, the two fled in a gray sport utility vehicle. Emergency responders brought the victim to Maimonides Hospital.

The intruder managed to break in through a rear security gate, according to police. The thief got away with jewelry and $10,000 in cash.
