Victim talks of attack by son of reality star
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- The homeless man who was punched in the groin by the son of one of the women on Bravo's "Real Housewives of Miami," is speaking out for the first time.
Gary Lee Brown is furious and doesn't have nice words to describe the teen seen on a video punching him as he slept behind Lincoln Road.
Brown: "He's a (expletive). I'd kill him with a gun."
Reporter: "You'd kill him?"
Miami Beach Police believe it is 20-year-old Peter Rosello, who was seen punching the 62-year-old in the groin and then ran away.
Rosello is the son of Bravo's "Real Housewives of Miami" cast member Alexia Echevarria.
The video was posted on Rosello's Facebook page last week, along with caption: "It's funny," but police are not laughing. "Well, we need to speak to him, but right now what is depicted on that video is arrestable," said Miami Beach Police sergeant Bobby Hernandez. "There is probable cause for an arrest. It appears he was battered for no reason."
Police are trying to arrange a meeting between Rosello and his attorney.
Brown said he would like to see Rosello get jail time. He said he's never been a victim of violence in his nearly 20 years on Miami Beach.
Reporter: "How are you feeling otherwise?"
Reporter: "You are feeling alright?"
Rosello faces a third degree felony charge.
