Wonder if the unknown perp was one of Lindytoe's union guys. The victim is much too gracious IMHO. His dad has the right idea how to deal with the attacker. This incident fits right into the stereotype of the nasty New Yorker.

LAKELAND, Fla. - A bay area electrical lineman who got attacked while helping restore power in the storm-ravaged area of New York will likely need surgery to repair his face.

John Applewhite was wrapping up a long day Friday with his 24-member crew from Lakeland Electric, when they pulled into a restaurant for a much needed dinner break.

That's when a stranger drove up, yelled something, and took a swing at John.

He says he still has no idea why he was attacked. He says he understands the people are on edge -- some have been without power for up to two weeks, but it's no excuse for violence.

"It just kind of hit us by surprise, really," he said. "I didn't know if I was going to be robbed or if he was just upset. He was in a nice vehicle, so I kind of let my guard down a little bit. It's unfortunate. It really is."

Right after the incident, the attacker drove off in his car. Police on Long Island are still searching for him.

But if the Applewhites ever stumble upon this mystery man, look out.

"I'd probably sucker punch him, just like he did my son," Morris said. "That's exactly what I'd do."
