The man who was recently busted for carrying out an Anti-Asian attack in Midtown was on parole for killing his mum.
Investigations into the shocking case revealed how the attacker killed his own mother in the year 2002. Moreover, the shocking news was revealed by authorities on Wednesday, leaving so many stunned beyond belief.
The attacker was identified as 38-year-old Brandon Elliot, who hails from the nearby hotel, that actually goes on to serve as a shelter for the homeless.
Police officers arrested him on Wednesday during the early hours, hitting him with a series of charges which also included assault as the top hate crime and attempted assault as another variant of hate crime, mentioned the cops.
Brandon was caught on footage carrying out the uber-violent attack where he punched as well as kicked an innocent 65-year-old victim, right in front of her own apartment building. The location of the incident was identified by authorities as 360 West 43rd Street, taking place during the early hours of 11:40 am on Monday.
In addition, the attacker can be heard on the camera as profusely yelling ‘f**k you, and you don’t belong here,” as reported by various police sources of the area.
In the year 2002 of April, Elliot received charges for murdering his own mother with a kitchen knife, where he mercilessly stabbed her to death. Reports identified the victim as Bridget Johnson who died as a result of the gruesome stabbing injuries to her chest in her residence in the Bronx.
Meanwhile, more details into the tragic case revealed how the incident was witnessed by Elliot’s young sister who was just 5 years old, mentioned the Post. However, there is yet to be an answer as to what really led to that slaying in the first place.
His mother died a few days later and Elliot was slapped with a murder conviction, being sentenced to 15 years in jail.
