New York: Surveillance video shows a man punching a 92-year-old woman to the ground in broad daylight last Friday. Rashid Brimmage is a registered sex offender with over 100 arrests for charges ranging from sexual abuse and groping women on the subway, public lewdness, harassment, criminal trespass, and punching strangers. Due to so-called criminal justice-reform policies that include no-cash bail, Brimmage has been released repeatedly, allowing him to injure more people. The woman has recovered injuries from the fall, but now is afraid to walk alone. -GEG

A veteran law enforcement officer says the current system is failing the perpetrators and the police.

Chilling surveillance video shows the moment the 92-year-old was thrown to the ground in broad daylight last Friday, her attacker watching as she hit her head on a fire hydrant.

“I was all bloody,” she told CBS2. “This man did nothing except change my life and almost kill me.”

Police say the attacker is 31-year-old Rashid Brimmage, a registered sex offender with at least 100 arrests for charges ranging from assault, to resisting arrest and persistent sexual abuse.

Former NYPD chief Kevin Harrington says Brimmage is a case study in why the city’s no-bail policy needs to be revisited.

“When you have sweeping reforms like this, they allow for a menace like this to be on the street, and ultimately it’s communities who pay the price,” Harrington said.
