Last March, Darryl Gillyard made news after he assaulted a woman who was 10-weeks pregnant. Gillyard assaulted New York City Housing Authority worker Lakeeyua Walker, after she didn’t thank him for holding the door open for her.
Gillyard not only thew a cup of coffee at Walker’s face, but he also punched her and knocked her down.
“Once I entered the building, I didn’t say anything to him. He was mad that I didn’t say thank you, so he called me an ungrateful bitch,” Walker stated.
“Then he takes his cup of coffee—he was drinking a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee—and he throws it at me in my face,” she told the news station. “He then choked me with one hand and then started hitting me repeatedly with the other.”
Gillyard, 33, was sentenced to five years in prison, according to the New York Daily News.
