Man Sentenced to 9 to 20 Years for Brutal Assault on Motel Clerk

May 12, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Megan Hunsicker, 215.348.6437, mahunsicker@buckscounty.org


A Philadelphia man who viciously assaulted a 62-year-old motel clerk over a perceived slight to his girlfriend was sentenced Wednesday to serve nine to 20 years in state prison.

Faruq Bey, 45, had pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and several lesser charges on Feb. 17 in Bucks County Common Pleas Court.

In a prolonged attack captured on security video, Bey struck the victim, Kishor Mehta, more than seven times with a closed fist on Aug. 5 inside the Lincoln Motel on Lincoln Highway in Bensalem Township.

Mehta, now 63, suffered fractured bones in his spine, wrist and face, as well as a concussion. He has undergone multiple surgeries for his injuries and is expecting to undergo two more in the near future. In a victim impact statement read in court Wednesday, he said he still suffers from vision problems, dizziness, headaches, chronic pain and emotional difficulties.

The assault happened in the motel lobby in front of multiple witnesses. Bey’s girlfriend was an employee at the motel, and he visited her there frequently.

Bey later told police that Mehta had “disrespected” his girlfriend by offering to pay her to marry a member of his family. Witnesses told police that Bey was yelling threats at Mehta during the attack, such as, “I am going to put you in a coma.”

Assistant District Attorney Megan Hunsicker, who prosecuted the case, said that Bey continued trying to attack Mehta even after the older man lay motionless on the floor. Bey’s girlfriend and another witness repeatedly tried to restrain him, but Bey pushed them away, police reports say.

“I can still see the anger in his eyes, still feel his painful punches to my face and body, and still feel the pain of my bones breaking,” said Mehta’s written statement, which Hunsicker read aloud in court. “…Mr. Bey came down on me like an evil force and I feel fortunate to be alive.”

Hunsicker told President Judge Jeffrey L. Finley that Mehta remains unable to work because of his injuries, and that he still averages about three appointments per week for ongoing medical treatment. She also noted that Bey has two prior felony convictions for burglary, one of which involved breaking into seven churches and one school in Philadelphia.

In sentencing Bey, Finley said the brutality of the attack was clearly documented in the security video and in photos of Mehta’s beaten and bloodied face. The assault was calculated, the judge said, because Bey had more than four chances to stop the attack when the girlfriend and another witness interceded, yet he chose to continue beating the victim. Even after being restrained, he said, Bey kept trying to lunge at Mehta.

In addition to the prison sentence, Finley ordered Bey to have no further contact with the victim.

Approved for release by Michele Kelly Walsh, Deputy District Attorney.

    These incidents are evidence of physical assault. My deep regrets  to the Mr. Mehta. Punishment of prison is a right thing to the guy. There is a need for an  <a href="http://www.essayontime-help.com/">essay writing</a>  to give the suggestions on to stop this type of incidents.But what about the injuries of Mr.Mehta and how much time takes to recovery from the injuries.

    https://martinenclosures.com I think the authorities have just done the right thing to punish him in the right way he deserves for what he had done. It cannot be justified with any sort of reasons as the man was assaulted so dangerously.
