Man Who Allegedly Fractured Woman’s Spine in Anti-Gay Attack Arrested, Charged With Hate Crime: NYPD

via DCPI

Dec. 13, 2018 By Meghan Sackman

Police have arrested a Manhattan man who allegedly made homophobic statements to a woman aboard an E train in Forest Hills before attacking her late last month.

Allasheed Allah, 54, was arrested today at around 9:30 a.m. and charged with assault and aggravated harassment that were both categorized as hate crimes.

Allah was allegedly aboard a Manhattan-bound E train on Nov. 30 when he approached a 20-year-old female passenger at around 5:10 p.m. and began directing homophobic slurs at her, based on his interpretation of her sexual orientation.

The 20-year-old began to walk away from her aggressor, but Allah allegedly punched her in the back of her head and shoved her to the ground.

The attacker then ran off the train at the Forest Hills-71st Ave Station, where he was last seen until his arrest.

The victim was treated in Elmhurst Hospital for her injuries.

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
