According to reports, the two doormen in Manhattan who were caught on security footage failing to intervene when an elderly Asian American woman was brutally assaulted outside their building have been fired.

Two Manhattan doormen caught on video doing nothing while a 65-year-old Asian American woman was brutally attacked on her way to church have been fired, their building’s management company said Tuesday,” reported NBC New York.

“Two workers inside the building were seen on surveillance video witnessing the attack but failing to come to the woman’s aid. One of them was seen closing the building door as the woman was on the ground. The attacker was able to casually walk away while onlookers watched, the video showed,” the report continued. “The building’s management company initially said they were suspended pending an investigation; their union said they called for help immediately.”

“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 its statement Tuesday. “For this reason, their employment has been terminated, effective immediately.”

“The union that represents the two doormen issued a statement on Tuesday as well, saying that the two have not been accurately depicted. The union also said a longer version of the building’s camera footage shows the pair did assist the victim of the attack and flagged down police,” NBC New York added.

The Daily Wire reported on March 31 that a man arrested for a brutal attack against an Asian woman in Manhattan “was reportedly out on parole for stabbing his own mother to death in 2002.”

“Elliot was charged with murder in 2002 for stabbing his mother three times in the chest with a kitchen knife. The attack occurred in front of Elliot’s 5-year-old sister, sources told [the New York Post]. His mother died two days later,” the report continued.

“Elliot was convicted of murder and sentenced to 15 years to life in prison. He was twice denied parole but was released on a lifetime parole in 2019,” The Daily Wire added.

“He was caught on video mercilessly punching and kicking the 65-year-old victim in front of an apartment building at 360 West 43rd Street around 11:40 a.m. Monday, yelling ‘F–k you, you don’t belong here,’ according to cops and police sources,” reported the New York Post.

“The unprovoked, broad daylight beating of Vilma Kari who was on her way to church, drew outrage in the city known for violence. Elliot allegedly kicked her in the stomach, knocking Kari down, then stomping on her head several times,’” reported The Daily Wire

According to the New York Post, the attack sparked further outrage when it appeared one of the employees in the building where it occurred shut the door. Several other men standing near the door of the building can also be seen not helping Kari.
