A convicted sex offender accused of putting a New York City man in a coma with a vicious sucker punch says he "blacked out" during the attack and claimed he is not a "violent person."

"That sh– don’t make no sense," 55-year-old Van Phu Bui told the New York Post in a jailhouse interview.  "He’s alive. He’s not dead. I thank God he survived. I didn’t want to hurt him that bad. I just hit him once."

"I can’t really remember anything," Bui added. "I was so mad. I blacked out."

New York Post reported that Bui expressed the sentiment in the interview that he didn’t belong in jail and said he would help pay for the victim’s medical bills.
