Husband Arrested in Fatal Beating of Man Who Tried to Rape His Wife

NEW YORK, NY (May 31, 2016) - A Bronx man beat an attacker to death with what appeared to be a tire iron after the attacker tried to rape the man's wife.

The woman's 61-year-old husband was arrested on manslaughter charges Tuesday, hours after police say he fatally beat the would-be rapist in the elevator of the couple's Washington Avenue apartment building. The alleged rapist, 43-year-old Earl Nash, forced his way into the building shortly after 10 p.m., authorities said.

Nash allegedly knocked at the victim's door, pushed his way in when she answered and exposed himself and tried to tear off the woman's clothes, according to sources.

Amid the struggle, the woman was able to break free and call her husband while one of the woman's cousins tried to fight off Nash. Sources said that Nash left the apartment and got into the elevator as the woman's husband was coming to her aid. The woman pointed out Nash to her husband, and sources said the husband swung what appeared to be a tire iron at Nash.

The pair then scuffled, sources said. Nash allegedly whipped the woman's husband with a belt, and the husband in turn bashed Nash in the head and body with the tire iron. One of the blows appeared to fracture the left side of Nash's skull, and the man was pronounced dead on arrival to Lincoln Hospital.

The couple's son said he saw his mother and aunt being attacked. "He started beating on my mother and my aunt, and they started fighting back," the son said. 

The husband's family defended him Tuesday morning, claiming he was trying to protect his wife. 

Diallo was quickly taken into custody and now faces a manslaughter charge.

Sources said that Nash has 19 prior arrests, and had served at least four years in a state prison.

Now it’s interesting that when someone legally protects his family(‘cause the alleged victim was IN their home), he’s arrested and charged with a crime. He attempted to harm the women and her husband rightfully protected his family. What was he supposed to do? He’s a hero. Let him go. I think the PD have their laws confused; its ok for unarmed Black men to be killed by police; but a Black man can’t even defend his family,when being physically attacked. What gives here?

This man should NOT be convicted for protecting his family.

The NYPD has to go through the motions. I’m sure all of them hate doing it and they’re praying that the jury finds himself not guilty.
