Osborn Street, Brooklyn, NY
Apr 26, 2021
The 32-year-old victim, Sumit Ahluwalia was working at the hotel on Osborn Street in Brownsville on Monday morning, April 26, when the man got into an argument with him and two other employees.
Ahluwalia said the man attacked him with a hammer, at his workplace, the Quality Inn at 120 Osborn St. in Brownsville.
"He got mad - through the front desk window he spit on us," said Ahluwalia.
The man walked out of the hotel, and Ahluwalia walked outside as well and called security.
"When he saw me, he started running towards me," Ahluwalia said, "He put his hand in his pocket - I thought he was pulling out a gun. I got fear and went inside."
The man “banged on my head with the hammer so hard,” Ahluwalia recounted. He said the assailant then screamed, “I don’t like you,” and fled.
“After that, like, for some time I couldn’t feel what happened with me,” he said, adding he was eventually taken to an emergency room.
“I couldn’t sleep. I had a big bump on my head,” he said. “I could fall — feeling dizziness, and the next morning I went to the doctor.”
Sumit Ahluwalia came to the United States with his young family just three years ago.
No arrests have been made. Singh gave reporters surveillance video showing some of the incident.
The NYPD released pictures of the suspect in the case, Saturday as they continued their search for him.
