103 Arrests & Releases Before Punching 92 Year Old Woman & Finally – Jail Time!

He’s schizophrenic (EditNO EXCUSE), has 103 arrests to his name and there’s no evidence the city’s mental-health apparatus has helped him. Now the “career criminal” charged with shoving a 92-year-old woman onto the ground and into a fire hydrant is finally off the streets and being held on bail as he faces prison.
Rashid Brimmage, 31, charged with assault for the unprovoked June 12 attack, was held in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond during a virtual arraignment held Wednesday in Manhattan Criminal Court.
“He’s a violent predicate felon facing a minimum of five years in state prison for this case,” said Assistant District Attorney Courtney Razner, making the case for why Brimmage should be held on even higher bail of $100,000 cash or $300,000 bond. Defense attorney Henna Khan argued, however, that the “indigent and harmless” Brimmage should walk free and the shove wasn’t a “deliberate act of violence” despite surveillance footage showing otherwise.
As Brimmage passed the cart-pushing nonagenarian near East 16th Street and Third Avenue, he abruptly shot out his left arm into the side of the senior’s head, the footage shows. The senior toppled onto the sidewalk and banged her head against a fire hydrant, leaving her with a nasty laceration and a fear of leaving her own home.
“Mainly it’s psychological — just the fear of going out on the street,” the Bronx woman, who asked to be identified only as Geraldine, previously told The Post. “This damned guy put me in a state where I’m fearful to walk the streets alone.”

Brute accused of shoving elderly NYC woman is no stranger to jail

At least for the time being, she can do so without fear of running into Brimmage.
Judge Paul McDonnell ordered the homeless man (EditNo Excuse) — who, according to a social worker, is bipolar and schizophrenic — held on the steep bail, calling him a “career criminal.”
Despite his lengthy criminal history and evident mental-health struggles, there is no evidence the city’s embattled, $1 billion Thrive mental-health initiative has rendered him any aid — a City Hall spokeswoman declined to reveal any connection, citing medical privacy laws.  In terms of volume, even the description of “career criminal” may sell Brimmage short.  With the senior shoving included, Brimmage has now been busted 103 times by the NYPD dating back to 2005, for a cornucopia of alleged (EditAlleged?) crimes ranging from assaulting a police officer to failure to report a change of address as a sex offender to cemetery desecration, according to law-enforcement sources.
While the court disposition wasn’t immediately known for many of the cases, Razner said that Brimmage has been convicted of 36 misdemeanors and three felonies.
In the first of his four 2020 arrests, Brimmage slapped and threatened to kill the manager of a Bronx Dunkin’ Donuts who told him to stop harassing customers for money on Feb. 4. “I came out from around the counter and I said, ‘Please don’t bother us,’ ” recalled manager Ripon Riza. “He used the back of his hand and hit me on the side of my face.”
