The victim of a brutal attack in Chelsea recounts the harrowing moments when a homeless man grabbed a hammer and bashed him in the head. One vicious swing of a hammer carved a deep gash in Ramon Acevedo’s head. For nearly half a century, the 64-year-old supermarket manager has worked for Gristedes. On Thursday morning, as Acevedo opened the store at 25th Street and 9th Avenue in Chelsea, he saw someone he knew all too well, seemingly waiting for him. “He was just standing there looking hard, so that’s what I said, I said let me just take a picture of this guy, this guy looks like he’s ready to do something, and he was,” Acevedo said.
