After lying in a coma for more than a week, the vendor who was brutally beaten in the Bronx was awake and responsive on Thursday for the first time since he was attacked. Souleymane Porgo, 53, was attacked May 2 in the Melrose section of the Bronx by five men, allegedly including Enrique Foote and Octavius Profit, both 18, who were arrested Thursday morning. They join 21-year-old William Burgess, who surrendered to authorities on Tuesday. The incident happened after police said one of the suspects tried to steal a handbag that the vendor was selling.
