Rudy Giuliani Slapped by Worker in New York, Suspect Arrested on Second-Degree Assault Charges

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani was slapped on the back by a worker at a ShopRite in Staten Island on Sunday while campaigning for his son.

The 39-year-old suspect, Daniel Gill, will be charged with second-degree assault on a person over the age of 65, according to authorities.

“All of a sudden, I feel this ‘Bam!’ on my back,” Giuliani, 78, said as he recalled the incident.

“I don’t know if they helped me not fall down, but I just about fell down, but I didn’t.

Rudy continued: “I feel this tremendous pain in my back, and I’m thinking, what the — I didn’t even know what it was.

“All of a sudden, I hear this guy say, ‘You’re a f–king scumbag,’ then he moves away so nobody can grab him.

“And he says, ‘You, you’re one of the people that’s gonna kill women. You’re gonna kill women.’

“‘You and your f–king friend are gonna kill women.’

“Then he starts yelling out all kinds of, just curses, and every once in a while, he puts in that woman thing.

”‘You guys think you’re saving babies, but you’re gonna kill women.’”

“The Supreme Court made a decision,” Giuliani said.

“You don’t go around attacking people because of it. I mean, go get it changed.”

“Luckily, I’m a 78-year-old who is in pretty good shape.

“If I wasn’t, I would have hit the ground and probably cracked my skull.

“I say to myself, ‘You know something? I gotta get this guy arrested.’

“I talk about broken windows theory all the time.

“You can’t let the little things go,” he said.

“I’m like, ‘I’m gonna get this guy arrested as an example that you can’t do this.’

“And I said, also, in New York, we don’t prosecute people anymore.

“And one of the reasons I brought crime down is I didn’t ignore stuff like this.”
