An 18-year-old delivery man was arrested Wednesday afternoon for attempting to choke a five-year-old Jewish boy inside an apartment building, officials said, JP UPDATES reports.
Francisco Oswaldo, who works as a delivery man for the Super 13 supermarket, delivered an order to an apartment building on Monday afternoon on 52nd street. After he finished delivering the boxes, he walked up to the boy who was standing in the lobby of the building, placing one hand around the boy’s neck and applying pressure, Detective Michael Moy of the 66th Precinct Detective Squad wrote in the complaint.
After the boy ran home and told his mother what happened, she notified Shomrim on Tuesday and they immediately contacted the police. A surveillance video contained proof of the boy’s version of the story.
Detectives arrested Oswaldo on Wednesday morning and charged him with assault in the second degree, attempted assault in the second degree, assault in the third degree, criminal obstruction of breathing, endangering the welfare of a child, menacing in the third degree and harassment in the second degree.
