Leoncio Martinez is lucky to be alive after a mugger stuck a gun to his head and pulled the trigger on the Upper East Side of New York City.
The gun jammed.
"Definitely, he was trying to kill me. I was freaking out," Martinez, 64, a retired air-conditioner installer, told the New York Post.
Police are looking for the mugger who put a black pistol to the back of Martinez's head after sneaking up on him.
Martinez took $70 out of his pocket to give the man, but saw his face.
"That's when he pulled the trigger right there in my face," said Martinez. "I was very scared."
