Hate Motivated Attack Takes Life of Immigrant Man

It is now being reported that the Ecuadorean Immigrant who was beaten savagely on Sunday has been declared clinically dead. Jose Sucuzhanay, 31, was attacked along with his brother, Romel, by three individuals in Brooklyn, New York.

During the brutal attack, the assailants shouted anti-gay and anti-Hispanic slurs at the brothers who were walking arm in arm. The brothers were apparently coming from a bar holding on to each other for support when the attackers approached in a sport utility vehicle.

The assailants exited the vehicle with a broken glass bottle, a metal baseball bat and began beating and kicking Jose Sucuzhanay. Romel, holding up his cell phone, announced to the attackers that the police had been call. The three attackers jumped in their vehicle and fled the scene.

Jose Sucuzhanay underwent brain surgery after the attack and was listed in critical condition. On Tuesday, it was announced that the he was “brain dead” or clinically deceased. Today, New York Daily News reported that Sucuzhanay was taken off life support.

The attackers have not been caught. A reward of $22,000 is being offered for the arrest and conviction of those involved. Investigators are asking people to call CrimeStoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477) if they have any information on this case.
