I SURRENDER: Chelsea BBQ Chair Basher Bayna-Lehkiem El-Amin Turns Himself In To Police: “I Was The Victim”

gay bashingBayna-Lehkiem El-Amin, the man wanted in connection with the bashing a gay man over the head with a chair for defending his partner at a Chelsea BBQ  joint in NYC turned himself in Tuesday morning after being on the run and alluding arrest for over a month..

El-Amin, 41, walked into the 7th precinct house with his lawyer around 9:30 a.m. 

El-Amin, who is “reportedly gay” by a very questionable source  has 18 previous arrests in numerous states for assault, credit-card fraud, possession of stolen property, and forgery, told the discredited blog G List Society who has been helping and supporting  El-Amin that the men he assaulted, Jonathan Snipes and his boyfriend, Ethan York-Adams, actually started the fight.

“He assaulted me,” El-Amin told G List Society. “I was the victim.”

“My only thought was to facilitate an exit that they would not follow behind us, because there was no one there to stop them from doing so—or pull a weapon out on us. There was a chair, that’s closest thing to me. That’s why I threw it. I didn’t look at as a way to mane [sic] him or use as a deadly force.”

As you can see in the below in a video of the horrible event Snipes and his boyfriend move away from El-Amin after being physically stomped on by him and not hitting him with anything and then El-Amin strikes Snipes over the head forcefullywith a chair. El-Amin also called the couple “white faggots” according to witnesses.

Currently El-Amin, who lives in the Bronx, was charged with two counts of felony assault and attempted assault, police said.

We will post more information as it becomes available.

 

BREAKING: NYPD Identifies Suspect In NYC’s Chelsea BBQ Attack On Gay Couple

gay bashingThe NYPD has identified the suspect involved in an assault on a gay couple in the Dallas BBQ restaurant in Chelsea as career criminal  Bayna El-Amin, El-Amin has 18 prior arrests spanning back to 1993, police said. All but two of those incidents took place out of state.

ABC 7 reports:

Detectives have been tracking him for about a week, but have not been able to take him into custody. They will put out his picture later Tuesday.

“I have him identified, we are seeking him now. He’s been identified for about a week. We will see if we can get him in,” said NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce. “He is a career criminal. We believe he has fled the state.”

Bayna El-Amin’s Facebook page appears to have been deleted, but Google’s cache for the page shows that he says he works in “Personal Security for Sketchie ENTertainment,” a nightclub promotion company.

Directly after the horrible incident blogger Waddie G of The G-List attempted to use this incident to drive a wedge into the LGBT community by falsely claiming “white privilege” and declaring that the attacker himself was actually gay and was a victim of harassment by the couple that was bashed.

 One of the patrons at the restaurant called me and identified the chair thrower by name.  I looked up the chair tosser’s Facebook profile, and he is allegedly gay, gay, gay and pretty popular in the ballroom scene.  I am not going to snitch the guy out because I am on his side of self-defenseminus the chair tossing and hate the white gay privileged narratives by gay bloggers, blogs and organizations who sensationalized this incident into more than what it was to protect the white gay hot head who wanted to demonize the Black gay men as aggressors over a physical altercation that he provoked when he could have ignored their foul language like I always do when insults are hurled my way.

Police released surveillance video of the suspect on May 7, one day after disturbing video emerged of a brawl inside the restaurant during which Jonathan Snipes was cracked over the head with a wooden chair.
