16 year old Astoria, NY girl clings to life after brutal hate crime


From New York Daily News…

A 16-year-old girl clinging to life at a Queens Hospital was attacked with a brick because she interrupted a boy who was trying to break into cars, court records show.

Michelle Rodriguez screamed out when she saw Omer Khogali, 17, pulling on the door handles of parked vehicles in Astoria on Tuesday, officials said.

The enraged 6-foot would-be thief caught up with Michelle later that night on 43rd St. Then he bashed her with the brick to shut her up, prosecutors said. The suspect ran off, and police later found the bloodied brick.
Michelle was still in critical condition Sunday at Elmhurst Hospital.
