An alleged sexual predator was punched in the face by the father of a victim outside the courtroom they were due to appear in. Yousuf Azami, an Afghan refugee, who is facing charges of kidnapping, lewdness, and sexual assault on a teenage girl, was hit by a man believed to be the victim's dad, Glenn Cromwell Jr.
Cromwell Jr followed Azami, 59, down a corridor and landed a punch that knocked him off his feet. After knocking Azami to the floor, Cromwell Jr continued to hit and kick him, despite attempts from several people, including a police officer, to break up the fight.
Cromwell Jr has since been arrested and charged with battery. The incident occurred as Azami was preparing to face court over an alleged attempted rape at the Mirage Hotel on September 3. The girl is thought to have been 14 or 15 at the time of the assault, according to the New York Post.
