A 16-year-old girl clinging to life at a Queens Hospital was attacked with a brick because she interrupted a boy who was trying to break into cars, court records show.
Michelle Rodriguez screamed out when she saw Omer Khogali, 17, pulling on the door handles of parked vehicles in Astoria on Tuesday, officials said.
The enraged 6-foot would-be thief caught up with Michelle later that night on 43rd St. Then he bashed her with the brick to shut her up, prosecutors said. The suspect ran off, and police later found the bloodied brick.
Michelle was still in critical condition Sunday at Elmhurst Hospital.
Khogali was busted Friday and arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on Sunday. He’s charged with attempted murder, assault and weapons possession.
As noted here, Astoria, Queens has one of the largest Muslim populations in New York. They even forced Pacino movie crew to remove sign referring to Koran.
