A Florida man is behind bars and charged with manslaughter after he allegedly beat a man to death whom he found watching him have sex through his girlfriend’s window, according to local reports.
Victor Vickery, 30, was arrested Thursday for the July 2018 death of Asaad Akar, 57, in Fort Lauderdale, The Palm Beach Post reported.
Vickery told police he was in bed with his girlfriend when they heard a sound at a window, which they had previously heard during times of intimacy and had reported to police.
Vickery said he went outside and saw Akar, who had a prior criminal record for prowling, standing with his genitals exposed. While Vickery confronted the man as his girlfriend called 911, Akar attacked him, Vickery said, prompting him to punch and kick him, according to a police report cited by Local 10.
Akar was taken to a hospital and died shortly after from his injuries.
Vickery was jailed on $100,000 bail. He is also charged with sexual battery related to an incident that happened a month after Akar’s death.
A Miami man has been arrested and charged with assault as a hate crime after he allegedly punched and kicked a 65-year-old man in midtown Manhattan on Monday.
The suspect, Steven Jorge, 28, also allegedly yelled “F*** you, Jew,” at the victim, according to New York Police. The incident happened about two blocks away from Grand Central Terminal at 11 a.m.
Jorge was arrested at 11:10 a.m. Monday after police received a 911 call about the 65-year-old male victim, who was allegedly punched in the face and kicked after he fell to the ground.
New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio says the NYPD will increase its presence in several neighborhoods with large Jewish populations. Police said these types of incidents have been on the rise since two men attacked a Kosher supermarket in Jersey City in early December.
According to court documents, Jorge will appear in New York Criminal Court on Jan. 10, 2020. A judge ordered he undergo a psychiatric exam.
