NEW YORK — Hours after many New York firefighters gathered to mark the fourth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, one of them was arrested for attacking an immigrant worker and telling him he looked “like he’s al-Qaida,” police said.
Firefighter Edward Dailey was arrested Sunday on charges of criminal mischief and felony second-degree assault, Police Sgt. Kevin Farrell said. He was released on his own recognizance.
Fire department officials said Dailey had been suspended without pay.
Dailey, 27, is accused of breaking a piece of Plexiglas off a curbside newsstand and throwing it at a 51-year-old man who works there, cutting his arm, Farrell said. Dailey had said the man, an immigrant from Bangladesh, looked “like he’s al-Qaida,” Farrell said.
