Arrest In Staten Island Bias Attack

The following is a statement issued by NYC Council Speaker  Christine C. Quinn:

 

STATEN ISLAND - “Today’s arrest of one of the attackers in this past weekend’s hate crime sends the message to criminals that bias-related crimes will not be tolerated, that we are committing tremendous resources towards investigating these crimes and that the perpetrators of these crimes will be brought to justice.

 

These crimes cannot be solved without a strong partnership between law-enforcement and the community. I want to thank Council Member Rose, Assemblyman Matt Titone, State Senator  Diane Savino, Reverend Troia, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force, El Centro del Inmigracion, the NAACP,  Project Hospitality, Make the Road New York and all the local clergy, volunteers and advocates who continue to work tirelessly for a safer Staten Island.

 

I want to call on Staten Island District Attorney Donovan to prosecute all these crimes as bias-related.

 

We will not tolerate hate crimes like the one that occurred this weekend or hate crimes of any kind. All New Yorkers must stand together to denounce such reprehensible acts.

 

If anyone has information about the remaining suspects still at large, please call CRIME STOPPERS 1-800 577-TIPS (8477).”
