Emmanuel Dash, 32, of Bedford-Stuyvesant, was indicted Wednesday for attempted murder for his alleged attack on a couple – Diamond Lopez, who is transgender, and friend Neil Ramin – outside their apartment. He is now being held on Riker & # 39; s Island (above) on a bail of $ 40,000
Dash would have knocked on different apartment doors in the area looking for the couple.
When he found their home, Lopez opened the door and Dash reportedly said: & Are you Diamond? I'm glad I know where you live because I don't like gays. & # 39;
Dash would have pulled out his knife and Lopez slammed the door.
A short time later the couple looked for Dash to talk to him, recognized him from the neighborhood.
When they returned to their apartment because they were looking for Dash, he would have approached them on the street and started attacking them with a knife.
Allegedly, he stabbed 32-year-old Neil Ramin in the neck, leaving a six-centimeter cut that partially cut the vertebral artery while trying to run back to his apartment.
The man's partner then called 911 and he was rushed to Kings County Hospital with a stab wound.
Dash was arrested a month later on July 24, 2019 for the attack.
& # 39; This suspect would have violated the holiness and security of this couple's house when he hated their door and then escalated hatred to a violent attack. There is no place for such ignorance and intolerance in Brooklyn, where we celebrate our diversity & # 39 ;, said Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez in a release on Wednesday.
In the 25 charges, Dash was accused of attempted murder, assault, threatening and various hate crimes.
Dash has been ordered to be held on Riker & # 39; s Island for $ 40,000 bail and returns to court on October 23, 2019. If convicted, he will be in jail for 25 years.
The accusations have relieved the shocked couple.
& # 39; That boy is in prison, & # 39; Lopez said to the New York Daily News.
Ramin says he & # 39; good & # 39; is after the knife attack and that he needed stitches to close the wound he had sustained during the attack, but since then they have been removed.
