Local Resident Indicted for Brutal Assault on Elderly Woman

The Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, Jr., has brought charges against Blake Norton, a 43-year-old man, for reportedly assaulting a 60-year-old woman at the West 116th Street and Lenox Avenue subway station on September 1, 2023. According to reports, Norton and the woman got into a dispute over a fallen walker, which eventually turned violent.

According to a New York State Supreme Court indictment, Norton has been accused of Attempted Assault in the First Degree, Assault in the Second Degree, and Assault in the Third Degree. The charges were made public on October 2, 2023, and Norton was swiftly taken into custody following the assault.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant D.A.s Nicole Borczyk and Meral Kerim, who are under the guidance of Assistant D.A. David Hammer and Executive D.A. Lisa DelPizzo. In addition, Trial Preparation Assistant Robert Copit is also actively involved in the proceedings. D.A. Bragg expressed his gratitude towards the NYPD for their assistance, with special thanks to Detective Thomas Gerding and the officers of the 28th Precinct, 30th Precinct, and Transit Division District 3.

It is important to note that the charges against Norton are currently just allegations, and it is crucial to presume his innocence until proven guilty. To provide context, the case details were gathered from official court documents and on-record statements made in court.
