NYPD: Female Student, 17, Brutally Beat Male Classmate Who Passed Gas In Her Direction
Angered that a fellow pupil passed gas in her general direction, a New York City high school student allegedly clobbered the male victim in the head with a metal stool and repeatedly punched him in the face, according to police.
Joquasha Rosado, 17, was arrested last week following the bloody attack at South Richmond High School in Staten Island. She was subsequently named in a criminal complaint charging her with felony assault, weapons possession, and harassment.
Rosado’s attack on the 15-year-old victim left the boy with “a bleeding gash that required eight staples,” reported Officer Jennifer Hadley. After hitting the victim with the metal stool, Rosado allegedly struck the pupil “about the head approximately ten to fifteen times with a closed fist.”
Now free on her own recognizance, Rosado is scheduled for a February 25 Criminal Court appearance.
