Who is Philip Sarner And Emily Orbay?
A white couple from Long Island has been arrested and is now facing charges and other charges for racist assault on a black hotel employee in Connecticut.
NYPD and the US Marshals Service, Philip Sarner, 39, and Emily Orbay, 29, from Long Island, detained in Brooklyn in New York on Monday.
The couple allegedly attacked 59-year-old hotel worker Crystal Caldwell from Groton, Connecticut, while staying at the Quality Inn in Connecticut, Mystic on June 26.
Both will face bigotry and prejudice-based fear, according to NBC Connecticut.
Caldwell, Sarner and Orbay, who were black during the alleged attacks caught in the surveillance video, repeatedly called the ‘monkey’. Caldwell told Day that the attack occurred after he named the front desk at 11:00 am to complain that his hot water was not working.
He said he could send him a mechanic or move him to another room, claiming that at this point the man was angry and cursed, saying that he would send his girlfriend to the lobby to ‘kick’. butt.’
Caldwell said he was hanging on to the man. Minutes later, the man came to the reception. Later, while threatening Caldwell, the manager who spoke to the hotel’s general manager and the man said to the housekeeper.
When Caldwell answered him, he said that the man was running to him and trying to shoot him. He said that he was repeatedly punched in the head while fighting, holding the shaking, swollen face and severely injured right eye. While punching her, Caldwell claimed that the man called her the ‘old monkey’.
Caldwell later claimed that when the police arrived, he was reviewing the surveillance footage, telling him to wait in the workers’ lounge and not leave the room. He said he went to the corridor to get ice in his face because he didn’t know the ambulance was coming.
However, once in the hallway, Caldwell shouted at the guy’s girlfriend to scratch him and scored him, pushed him against the wall, and then lowered it to the ground, kicked him and injured his ribs.
He said he only avoided being hit in the face because he could push himself off the ground.
In addition to the allegation that Caldwell called ‘monkey’ during the second assault, which is said to be on the spot, the couple also called ‘Black Life Matter? Your life doesn’t matter, you don’t deserve to live in this world. ‘
Caldwell’s family and other supporters complained that the police allowed the couple to escape from the scene and did not arrest them immediately.
“ There was no arrest. They took them to the hospital, they were still not arrested. They were allowed to leave [hotel] things, are you serious? ‘Caldwell’s nephew told Wayne Rawls Day.
‘If I were, I would be under the prison, I would still be under this prison.’ Police, after their investigation, presented a slightly different version of the events. Officials said they were ‘completely wrong’ in the scene where the second attack took place.
The surveillance video showed that the first attack took place at 11.33 in the morning and one of the witnesses (another hotel employee) took Caldwell to his office before calling the police. The second attack caught in the video took place at 11.37.
“The attacks took place before any police arrived at Quality Inn,” he said.
The police also said that they couldn’t find any witnesses who heard or saw suspects – Sarner and Orbay – said to Caldwell: ‘Black life matters, you don’t deserve to live in this world, not life. ‘
Police also said that the first attack occurred after Caldwell left the lobby area when he had a “verbal debate” in a corridor with the suspect. The police then walked away and were chased and attacked. After the police arrived at the scene, Caldwell said Sarner and Orbay asked for medical help.
Police said the first incident had enough possible causes to arrest Sarner and Orbay after watching partial surveillance footage, but was prevented from entering the ER to arrest due to coronavirus measures.
The police then told Sarner on the phone that they had to make the necessary arrangements to accompany the Quality Inn to pick up their belongings because they were ‘welcome to the hotel that day’. The police then planned to arrest the couple at that time.
However, at 3 pm that day, Sarner called the police, claiming that Caldwell was threatened and harassed by his relatives on Facebook.
At about 3:20 pm, the police said they were calling Sarner, who told him that he was still in the hospital, but the police then moved away with Orbay that a Lyft ordered to return to the hotel, picked up their cars, and – within a minute of arrival – walked away.
The couple, as previously assumed by the hotel staff, did not stay in the rooms of any of their properties.
Three days later, on June 29, the police could not get all the video footage of the incident from the hotel, including a video showing that the couple put their luggage on their cars between the attacks. Then an arrest warrant was received on July 1.
Police told NBC Connecticut that neither Sarner nor Orbay had permanent addresses. He was finally followed in Brooklyn on July 13.
