NYPD said the attack took place at about 2:20 a.m. inside a deli in the Park Slope neighborhood, on the corner of Saint Mark’s Place and 4th Avenue, a short walk from Spain’s home on Nevins Street.

According to witnesses, an argument began after a man complimented the women and said he found them attractive, but was rejected. He called them names, the witness said, then left the deli.

“He walked down the block angry. And then two or three minutes later he comes up and starts banging and kicking on the glass door trying to get in,” the witness said, adding that the deli staff had locked the door to prevent him re-entering.

“The second they opened the door, he ran back into the door and started attacking them,” the witness said.

Alphonso Goodson, the girls’ grandfather, told the New York Post: “He walked in and started hitting on her. She said, ‘I don’t want to be bothered with you. Leave me alone.’ Then the storeowner put him out.”

“He was waiting for them,” Goodson said. “He took it the wrong way. He came after them. That was wrong. That was dead wrong. I hope they catch this guy.”

Another witness said: “They’re not sober. They get rejected and they just escalate it ten-fold. We (were) all having a good night before this,”
