Giuliani wants employee accused of slapping him to be prosecuted

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani wants the grocery store worker accused of hitting his back to be prosecuted, NBC News reported Monday.

In a recent livestream, Giuliani told her followers about the incident that happened at a Staten Island supermarket on Sunday.

He had stopped by the business to campaign for his son, Andrew, who is running for the Republican nomination for governor of the state.

“I arrived at the ShopRite center in Staten Island to campaign for my son. I campaigned at this ShopRite center, I’m not exaggerating, 500 times. I think a thousand, but I’m going to say 500,” he explained, adding that a friendly crowd had gathered around him:

About a third of the way through I was hit in the back like a rock was hitting me. It took me a step or two forward. It didn’t knock me down, but it hurt me a lot. I didn’t know what it was, I had no idea what it was. And all of a sudden I heard someone yell something at me that I can’t repeat about who I am, swearing, dirty swearing. And then some dirtier swears and some dirtier swears as he retreated, ran away. And then he turned around and said I was a woman killer. “You kill women, your party kills women, you are among those who kill women.” I could have referred to the word abortion there, but it was mostly about killing women.

It has to stop, it has to stop. It could have been much worse, of course. People have suffered a lot more. This idea that you attack people because, in my case, I am pro-life… but respectful of the position of others.

Giuliani appeared to be referring to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade Friday.

When asked if the suspect should be charged with assault and/or fired from ShopRite, Giuliani replied, “Do I think he should be fired from his job and is- do I think he should be prosecuted? You are absolutely right, I think he should be prosecuted.

Surveillance footage showed the moment a person wearing a hat came up behind Giuliani and appeared to slap his back before walking away:

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) said the suspect, Daniel Gill, 39, has been charged with second-degree assault, according to NBC’s report.
