Man on parole for murdering his mother charged with beating up Filipina, 65, in New York


The man who viciously assaulted a 65-year-old Filipina woman by kicking her head in a savage attack in New York has been arrested, police said. Brandon Elliot, 38, was detained by NYPD cops at 2am on Wednesday after CCTV footage of the horrific beating drew widespread condemnation and sparked a police manhunt. Elliot is currently on lifetime parole after murdering his own mother in 2002 and was released from prison in 2019, according to NBC New York. He lives in a Manhattan hotel serving as a homeless shelter near where Monday’s attack took place and has been charged with felony assault as a hate crime.
