The Brooklyn man was arrested in connection to an early morning attack Sunday Aug. 5 inside a diner on West 14th street, police said. Senior, another man and a woman attacked a 23-year-old woman who had taken cellphone video of them, according to police.

The trio allegedly attempted to take the woman’s phone to delete the video, at which time Senior took her phone while a second man choked the victim by putting her head between his arms. Police said the woman was left unconscious and thrown onto the floor.

Senior and his female accomplice then allegedly punched the victim in the face, causing lacerations to her chin, a swollen lip and her mouth to bleed.

“This this is embarrassing, I haven’t eaten food in three days,” Rucker said. “And its more than just the physical pain.”

Senior’s attorney released a statement on the incident:

“Casanova adamantly denies the allegation that he assaulted anyone. Any contention he did so is totally false,” the attorney said. “We are in the process of conducting our own investigation into these false allegations.” source

After the incident, police said they were searching for three people — two men and a woman.

One man, believed to be Senior, was described as last seen wearing all black and a gold chain with a pendant that says “2X.”

No other arrests have been made in the case.

Anyone with information on the beating may contact police at 911.
