Amazon driver fights off alleged drunken deviant migrant in NYC. Guess who ends up in cuffs?

A delivery driver’s supposed self-defense against an allegedly drunk and deviant illegal alien landed him in handcuffs: “I did things the right way…and I wound up going to jail.”

The lawlessness in New York City courtesy of soft-on-crime policies has only been exacerbated by the ever-worsening illegal alien crisis. Now, after months of freebies and with the city plotting a path to dole out billions in cash, an Amazon driver detailed his experience being victimized by a “pervert” in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Speaking with the New York Post, the deliveryman, identified only as Abu, recounted fending off an attack Sunday before 5 p.m. after a suspect allegedly tried to make off with some parcels.

“I was unloading my stuff, and a guy — he was like a pervert, he had his penis out,” detailed the driver. “He’s in the corner of the street j–king off and I told him, ‘Hey, what are you doing?’ And he went into my van where all my mail and everything was at, and I pushed him away, and he ran towards me like he was going to aggressively hit me.”

“I really had to protect myself,” continued Abu who told the newspaper he had recalled how another delivery driver had recently been slashed in the Bronx. “So what i did was I looked towards the floor and I saw a big snow pile. I picked up a piece and I socked him with it and he went down on his butt.”

The suspect, later identified as 26-year-old Yeison Sanchez, was said to be a foreign national staying at a nearby shelter and was described as clutching a beer bottle at the time of the incident.

After endeavoring to defend himself, Abu said he saw cops nearby and turned to them for help while the suspect allegedly told the officers “in Spanish that I punched him in the face. I told them there’s cameras around, you can probably find something. They said there were no cameras. After a while it turned into a ‘He said, she said’ thing and that’s how it went.”

Sanchez was reportedly released without bail Monday after being charged with petit larceny and public lewdness while Abu was charged with third-degree assault. Having been released on a desk appearance, he told the Post, “He was trying to aggressively hurt me and I just protected myself and my property from my job. That’s it. I ended up being taken in, and now I have an open case about this.”

“It’s ridiculous because I asked the cops for help. I ran to the cops and said, ‘Hey, can you please get this guy. I don’t want to hurt him. I already hit him with a snowball and he was pretty hurt,'” the driver recalled. “I didn’t want to lose my job. I did things the right way, by the books, and I wound up going to jail.”

Abu’s experience followed a Jan. 24 incident in the Bronx where 23-year-old William Herrera had been slashed in a reportedly unprovoked attack that left him needing 110 stitches.

Herrera had told NBC News after the attack, “My van was completely open. He could have took the whole van if he wanted to. He didn’t take nothing. He just wanted to cut me, I guess.”

Meanwhile, as examples like the prosecution of former U.S. Marine Daniel Penny have stood as deterrents for citizens to step in on behalf of others, Abu offered his own personal experience of feeling slighted by the justice system.

After his illegal alien father had been deported to the Dominican Republic when the man’s own car had been broken into, Abu said, “My dad ended up passing away from being deported because things were bad over there. That always stuck with me after that. I never wanted to tell the police anything, but this time I did, I tried to help myself, and it happened to me now.”

“I’m lucky I’m not an immigrant because I’d probably have to go back to my own country,” said the driver. “That’s why I hate dealing with police, because it ends up biting me in the rear end.”
