New video footage shows a man who allegedly raped a teenage minor being punched in the face by a man believed to be the minor’s father outside of a courtroom in Las Vegas.
Collin Rugg, co-founder of Trending Politics, shared video footage of the incident outside the Las Vegas courtroom in a post on X, formerly Twitter, Rugg writing, “Father of daughter who was allegedly kidnapped and r*ped knocks her attacker out cold outside of a Las Vegas courtroom. This is the justice we like to see.”
According to KLAS, 59-year-old Yousuf Azami was scheduled for his preliminary hearing last Tuesday regarding charges of kidnapping, lewdness, and sexual assault against a 14-or-15-year-old female minor; however, Azami walked out of the Las Vegas courtroom prior to the hearing.
Video footage shows Glenn Cromwell Jr., who was identified by Rugg as the victim’s father, following Azami out of the courtroom and down a hallway before confronting him and punching him in the face.
Multiple people, including an officer of the court, can be seen rushing toward the two men immediately following the incident. Cromwell Jr. was later charged with battery for punching the alleged sexual predator.
According to The New York Post, last Tuesday’s incident occurred in the same courthouse where a three-time felon jumped over a judge’s bench, tackled the judge, and fought with court officers earlier this month.
According to police documents reviewed by KLAS, Azami was originally from Afghanistan and is currently an actor. The actor was charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor in his apartment after police officers were notified by the Mirage Hotel on September 3, 2023, of a teenager who claimed she was raped after she entered Azami’s car in the parking lot of a marijuana dispensary, according to The New York Post.
“Azami was on the couch for a while on his phone and then came to lay with her on the bed,” police reported. “[The teenager] had just started to fall asleep when Azami lay behind her. She stated she felt his pelvis ‘grinding’ against her and he was not wearing any clothes.”
According to the police documents, the minor allegedly asked Azami to stop, took a shower, put on a piece of the actor’s clothing, and ran away from the man’s apartment. The police report noted that the minor explained “she had been kidnapped and raped and needed police.”
