A Harlem man has admitted to attacking a woman in December and hurling homophobic slurs at her as she exited an E train in Queens because he believed that she was a homosexual.
Allasheed Allah, 54, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to one count of third-degree assault as a hate crime, according to a release from the Queens District Attorney’s Office.
Criminal Court Judge Mary Bejarano indicated that she will give Allah a one-to-three-year prison term on Nov. 7 when he comes back to court for sentencing.
According to the release, on Nov. 20, Allah argued with the 20-year-old victim at the 71st Street stop in Forest Hills on a Manhattan-bound E train when he saw the victim’s female friend kiss her on the cheek.
