Default Coon arrest in brutal Manhattan attack on Asian woman heading to church

Building staff suspended for failing to help Asian woman during brutal NYC attack

The building staff that witnessed, but did nothing to help an Asian woman who was the victim of a hate-fueled, broad-daylight beatdown in Midtown have been suspended, the management company announced.

The suspect punched and kicked the 65-year-old victim in front of an apartment building at 360 West 43 Street around 11:40 a.m. Monday, yelling “F–k you, you don’t belong here ,” according to cops and police sources.

Video footage of the assault provided by police shows the suspect kicking the victim to the ground — then stomping her on the head several times as she was down on the sidewalk.

The clip shows several men from the building standing near the door — feet from where the attack unfolded — without lifting a finger to help.

The Brodsky Organization, which manages the building, said in a statement posted to Instagram that it “condemns all forms of discrimination, racism, xenophobia and violence against the Asian-American community.”

“The staff who witnessed the attack have been suspended pending an investigation in conjunction with their union,” the statement said. “The Brodsky Organization is also working to identify a third-party delivery vendor present during the incident so that appropriate action can be taken.”

The suspect was still on the loose Tuesday morning.

Suspect in brutal attack on Asian woman may have pulled knife in separate dispute

The race-hating suspect caught on video brutally beating an Asian woman on a Midtown street may be a local cook who pulled a steak knife on a guy right after the horrific attack, a witness claimed Tuesday.

Martin Todd, who works maintenance for a nearby building on West 43rd Street in Manhattan, said he was having lunch in his car between 11:30 a.m. and noon Monday when he saw the confrontation with the weapon.

“I saw the same guy … arguing with another guy,’’ Todd said — referring to the man who beat a 65-year-old Asian woman on West 43rd Street near Ninth Avenue around 11:40 a.m.

“He was a cook or something, that’s what it looked like,” Todd said of the suspect. “He had a red apron on, like a chef’s apron.’’

The men cursed at each other — then the suspect “pulled out a knife,” Todd said.

“It looked like a steak knife. … The other guy backed up, and the [suspect] walked up the block,’’ the witness said.

Todd said the dispute occurred around “11:45, 11:50” and that the victim in that case was black.

He said he believes the victim may have been trying to confront the suspect over the attack on the Asian woman.

Todd said it appeared that the suspect is the same man in both incidents because they each had a distinct red piece of clothing on them.

In surveillance footage from the anti-Asian attack, a long, brightly colored red cloth hangs from around the man’s neck as he attacks the woman, while later photos released by cops show a bright red cloth sticking out of his jacket.

“I think it’s the same guy because I remember that red apron,’’ Todd said. “Once I saw that red apron … I said, ‘That’s the same guy.’ I just didn’t see him attack that lady.”

Arrest in brutal Manhattan attack on Asian woman heading to church

Wednesday, March 31, 2021 3:36AM



MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- Police have made an arrest in the brutal attack, caught on camera, on a 65-year-old Asian American woman who was on her way to church in Midtown Manhattan.

38-year-old Brandon Elliot was taken into custody Tuesday night.

Investigators say Elliot is the man seen punching and kicking the victim in a video that has made national headlines.

Elliot was identified by residents as a local homeless person, and multiple Crimestoppers tips directed police to a hotel serving as a homeless shelter on West 40th Street.

Police spent the day yesterday watching the hotel and neighborhood and took Elliot into custody last night.

He was charged with assault and attempted assault as a hate crime and will be arraigned later today.

Elliot has a long police record. He was arrested in July 2002 for fatally stabbing his mother when he was 19 in the Bronx.

After serving 17 years in state prison, he was released on lifetime parole in November 2019.


The unprovoked attack happened just before noon Monday in front of 360 West 43rd Street in Midtown.

Authorities say the victim was kicked and fell to the ground as the suspect made anti-Asian statements toward her.

He then repeatedly struck her while she was on the ground, saying "(Expletive) you. You don't belong here."

Man busted for Midtown attack on Asian woman was on parole for killing his mom
By Joe Marino, Amanda Woods and Lia Eustachewich
March 31, 2021 | 7:15am | Updated

The man busted for the hate-fueled attack on an Asian woman in Midtown was out on parole for killing his own mother back in 2002, authorities said Wednesday.

Brandon Elliot, 38, who lives in a nearby hotel that serves as a homeless shelter, was arrested early Wednesday and hit with a number of charges, including assault as a hate crime and attempted assault as a hate crime, police said.

He was caught on video mercilessly punching and kicking the 65-year-old victim in front of an apartment building at 360 West 43rd Street around 11:40 a.m. Monday, yelling “F–k you, you don’t belong here ,” according to cops and police sources.

In April 2002, Elliot was charged with murder for using a kitchen knife to stab his mother, Bridget Johnson in the chest three times in their East 224th Street home in the Bronx, according to previous reports.

The deadly attack took place in front of Elliot’s 5-year-old sister, sources told The Post. It’s unclear what led to the slaying.

Johnson, 42, died a couple of days later.

Elliot was convicted of murder and sentenced to 15 years-to-life in prison.

He was denied parole twice — first at a February 2017 hearing and again in December 2018, according to a state Department of Corrections official.

But the following year, he was approved for release in September and sprung on lifetime parole two months later.

The Bronx District Attorney’s Office didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking more details on the murder case.

Elliot’s rap sheet also includes an arrest for allegedly robbing his mother in July 2000, sources said. The pair had gotten into a squabble over money — when he allegedly yanked jewelry from her neck and choked her, the sources added.

The broad daylight beatdown on Monday stoked outrage after the surveillance footage showed witnesses — including building workers — doing nothing to intervene.

One of the building employees even appears to shut the door to the building as the attacker flees.

The victim, Vilma Kari, was on her way to church when, unprovoked, Elliot allegedly kicked her in the stomach, sending her flying to the ground and stomped on her head several times as she lay on the sidewalk.

He shouted anti-Asian slurs at her and sneered, “You don’t belong here” before walking away.

Staff members at 360 West 43rd Street were suspended over their apparent inaction.

Kari suffered a broken pelvis and was taken to the hospital. She was released the next day.

Kari is Filipino American, according to Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel Romualdez.

Elliot is expected to be arraigned in Manhattan criminal court sometime on Wednesday.

A resident at the Four Points by Sheraton — the West 40th Street homeless shelter where Elliot was staying during the alleged attack — said he knew the brute well after spending time with him at another shelter.

“He told me he was [a] diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic,” the man, who declined to give his name, told The Post. “He’s quiet. He doesn’t talk much. He is really paranoid. He has mental issues.”

Elliot’s latest bust comes in the wake of a surge of attacks against Asian victims in New York City and elsewhere.

The NYPD has recorded a 1,300-percent increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea tweeted the news of Elliot’s arrest.

“Great work by your @NYPDDetectives, identifying & apprehending the assailant, all within 48 hrs — always seeking justice for victims,” he wrote.

During an appearance Wednesday morning on PIX 11, the top cop was asked whether Elliot should’ve been out on parole — a question he deferred to the parole board.

“When you’re releasing people from prison and you’re putting them in homeless shelters, you’re asking for trouble,” he said.

“There’s got to be a safety net and there’s got to be resources for them. “It just never should’ve happened.”

News of Elliot’s release on parole prompted city union heads, including Detectives’ Endowment Association President Paul DiGiacomo, to blame local officials.

“When New York politicians and their parole board think it’s a good idea to release a murderer who killed his mother — they certainly can’t pretend to be surprised he brutally attacked a woman in Midtown,” he said. “It’s about time the City Council, State Assembly, and Governor be held accountable for their irresponsible laws and decisions. New Yorkers are clearly not safe because of them. They need to fix what they broke.”

Lieutenants Benevolent Association President Lou Turco added: “You can’t make it up. Do we need any more proof that the failed policies of our elected officials are leading to more New Yorkers being injured and killed? When are we going to hold our elected leaders accountable? Reimagine elected officials.”
