The boy started screaming and crying, the mother concerned asked what happed as his 17-year-old sister, Carmen, stated “that guy right there hit him.” The mother and the daughter held the suspect down until the police arrived. The suspect spit, kicked and
34-year-old Babacar Mbaye, has a history of attacking strangers, 40 prior arrests on his record, including four arrests just this year according to a NYPD spokesman..
The family did everything right to stay safe, including taking an Uber instead of the subway.
Mbaye was charged with assault, resisting arrest and endangering the welfare of a child. He’s due back in court Wednesday, but why is he out….oh yeah bail reform. Wonder how DA Alvin Bragg will deal with him…..?
We need to stop this madness.
