Roommates, an arrest has finally been made over the senseless beating of a Black woman on January 18th, after she refused advances of men inside a Harlem liquor store on W 128th St. on the block east of St. Nicholas Ave. While inside the store, men harassed Taylor Mariie as she declined an offer from one of the men to purchase her wine. Surveillance video recorded outside the liquor store showed the suspects surrounding Taylor and attacking her as she exited the store.
They punched and kicked Taylor and bit her forehead during the senseless attack, and they stole her iPhone 11 from her hands before they ran off. Yesterday it was announced that one of the suspects, 22-year-old Tyrone Cooper, was apprehended in Brooklyn, NY. This was due to an unrelated domestic incident confirmed by NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison announced on Twitter, releasing further details. “This evening, Tyrone Cooper was apprehended by @NYPD67Pct patrol officers in Brooklyn after responding to a domestic violence radio run,” he tweeted. “He was also wanted for the brutal assault on a 31-year-old female that occurred on January 18th outside a Harlem liquor store.”
Police said Tyrone beat his 20-year-old girlfriend inside her East Flatbush apartment. He hit her in the face and choked her, according to the NY Daily Mail. The victim also told police that Tyrone had previously busted her jaw.
NYPD Chief Rodney also tweeted that Tyrone will also be charged in the Harlem assault. He tweeted, “The #NYPD and local residents will continue to work together to apprehend the remaining perpetrators. Anyone with information pertaining to this crime is asked to call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or DM @NYPDTipsand they are looking for community help to apprehend the three other men involved. “
