The NYPD has a suspect in custody after he was caught on camera assaulting a 92-year-old woman in Gramercy Park, according to CBS2.
It turns out, this man, Rashid Brimmage, 31, who just walked by and nonchalantly pushed the elderly woman isn’t a stranger to the authorities. Police say Brimmage has been arrested about 101 times. No, really. He’s a registered sex offender; arrests include assault, harassment, resisting arrest, and persistent sexual abuse.
“Oh, he did look back. He did look back to see me fall on the floor, that rat!” the victim told CBS2 after watching the surveillance video for the first time. “He hit me on the left – ow – that hurts to touch it,” indicating her head. “[My arm] was all bloody. This man did nothing except change my life and almost kill me.”
“With my visor on and my face mask, so he barely saw who I was. He just saw an elderly lady walking slowly and he decided I’m perfect for a victim,” she added. “I’m not going to walk on the street alone right now, absolutely not.”
Some people are just bad. Like Rashid Brimmage, who has been arrested over 100 times and is randomly pushing elderly people on the streets.
