Two Manhattan doormen were let go after they were seen on video failing to help an elderly Asian woman who was attacked outside of the building last month.
On Tuesday, the building’s management company posted to Facebook that their investigation into the doormen’s lack of action has been completed and that they have been let go, according to The Hill.
“While the full lobby video shows that once the assailant had departed, the doormen emerged to assist the victim and flag down an NYPD vehicle, it is clear that required emergency and safety protocols were not followed,” the Brodsky Organization said in the post. “For this reason, their employment has been terminated, effective immediately.”
In the March 29 incident, Brandon Elliot, 38, approached a 65-year-old Asian woman outside the complex in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. He can be seen on video knocking her to the ground and then kicking her repeatedly.
Elliot was arrested and charged with assault and hate crime charges. At the time of the attack, he was on life parole after serving 17 years in prison for murdering his mother.
