A Bronx man was arrested in connection with the death of an 80-year-old man last week.
Police say Jason Rivera, 27, attacked 80-year-old Manuel Rosario at the New York Grill Deli on East 139th Street on Sept. 1. Rosario's friends say the two got into an argument over money before Rivera hit him.
Police found Rosario unresponsive when they arrived on the scene. He died at Lincoln Hospital Wednesday and the medical examiner determined blunt force trauma was the cause of death.
