The 33-year-old victim was on South Street near Whitehall Street when he was approached by a woman who tried to sell him fake tickets to the landmark at about 3:30 p.m. on Monday, according to the NYPD.

When the victim refused, another ticket hawker punched him in the face, knocking him unconscious, police said.

The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he was treated for a fractured skull, police said.

Mayor de Blasio said that city administrators and authorities don't take schemes targeting visitors lightly.

"If there's something aimed at tourists...we will get at it very, very aggressively," the mayor said.
