A Trump Hotels executive was arrested for assault in Brooklyn on Sunday after a mother claimed she was attacked while trying to adjust her child's car seat, police said.
Nathan Crisp, 34, of Gold Street in Downtown Brooklyn, was arrested for misdemeanor assault and given a desk appearance ticket, authorities said.
Crisp's arrest comes after 27-year-old Sheneik McCallum claimed she was attacked by the man after she pulled over outside a condo tower to secure one of her children in a car seat, according to community activist Tony Herbert.
Herbert said that Crisp allegedly yelled at McCallum to get off private property, which spurred an argument between the two.
That's when Herbert said Crisp allegedly blocked her car in with his vehicle and attacked her, body slamming her to the ground as her children watched.
Herbert added that he didn't think that Crisp should have been released following the attack.
"I am not sure why this person isn't in handcuffs in a cell somewhere, but we will be reaching out to the brass at the NYPD," Herbert said in a statement.
Trump Hotels said it is conducting an internal investigation into the alleged attack.
"This is a personal matter having nothing whatsoever to do with Trump Hotels or any of its affiliates," the hotel chain said. "That being said, Trump Hotels is conducting its own internal investigation into this matter to determine what occurred and takes these allegations seriously."
The attack was first reported by the Daily News. He told the newspaper he was "totally innocent."
"“I am totally innocent of all charges and look forward to defending this matter in court at which time I am confident that I will be fully vindicated,” he told the News in an email. “I do not have any further comment.”
NBC 4 New York has reached out to Crisp for comment.
