A violent, dangerous homeless man who was charged with beating a man last year was put back on the streets due to a so-called “bail reform” program. Once back on the streets, on Thursday, he allegedly battered and pummelled two women in the Upper West Side, only to be freed again!
Twenty-three-year-old Darrell Johnson left one of his female victims with a laceration to her face that is so bad it is disfiguring, according to law enforcement sources.
Johnson, who has over a dozen arrests on his record going back to 2014, according to sources, last year was charged with assault and harassment in the man’s beating.
Johnson allegedly punched the man “about the face with a closed fist multiple times” in a building in Harlem, according to a complaint filed in court.
The homeless man then allegedly “used his feet to kick and stomp” the man in the August 3, 2020, attack. The guy sounds like a real animal.
But thanks to progressives in state government funded by George Soros, the Manhattan judge had to release the violent POS without bail because none of the charges were those that required bail under the new state bail laws. Judges could use their discretion on setting bail prior to the change in the law.
Progressive Democrats are destroying cities with bail reform laws and laws that say if you steal anything under $950 it’s just a misdemeanor. So now, in places like San Francisco, California, you have Walgreens and other retail stores pulling out of the state because the shoplifting is just so bad they can’t earn a profit.
So, with that case still pending, Johnson was back out on the streets once again when he allegedly went up to a 50-year-old woman on Thursday around 9:20 am at Broadway and West 79th and attacked her in a “violent, unprovoked” assault, sources said.
He beat her so brutally that she suffered a “disfiguring laceration” on her face.
This animal then attacked another woman a block away about 3 minutes later.
Welcome to Progressive America!
Court records for that assault show that Johnson walked up to the 32-year-old woman on West 80th Street and began punching her in the face, causing “redness and swelling,” according to the complaint.
He has to be mentally ill and should be off the streets, but thanks to do-gooder progressives, multiple people now suffer because of this guy not being locked up.
Prosecutors in a Manhattan court on Friday recommended Johnson be released under supervised monitoring for the attacks, and a judge granted the request.
