Queens, NY - Queens Man Dies From Punch To Face, Police Say

A man has been arrested in Queens, facing charges he killed another man by punching him in the face with extreme force.

The 66-year-old victim, Nick Nowillo, was allegedly escorting a neighborhood woman home on Cresent Avenue in Long Island City late Wednesday. The woman told police she had asked for the help because the suspect, who has not been identified, was seen in the street acting strangely.

At some point Nowillo was confronted by his accused attacker and was hit several times, including with a powerful punch to the face, police said. He collapsed to the ground and died at Astoria General Hospital a short time later.

Charges are pending against the suspect.
