Bob Arihood has more information about the following item in the NYPD Daily Blotter from yesterday.... first, here is the item from the Post:
A thug seriously injured a man in a Greenwich Village apartment after they had met at a bar, authorities said yesterday.
After leaving the pub together, Joel Pakela, 40, escorted the victim to the apartment on Mercer Street at 5:20 a.m. last Thursday, cops said.
Inside, Pakela suddenly attacked the man, hitting him repeatedly in the face and breaking his orbital bone, sources said.
Witnesses called 911 and police arrested Pakela after a struggle, authorities said.
He was charged with assault and resisting arrest, said a spokesman for DA Cyrus Vance Jr.
As Bob noted: "It seems that an East Village personality that we all know , the infamous L.E.S Jewels ( a.k.a. Joel Pakela) is going to be doing some time." (Read Bob's full post here.)
