The Sunnyside property manager who was arrested two days ago faces charges of harassment, stalking, and attempted assault, according to Queens Criminal Court documents.
Neal Milano, the 70-year-old property manager of the building at 47-55 39th Place, was arrested on September 3 at 2:20 pm. Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer said NYPD met Milano at the airport, where he was returning to the country after being away for several weeks.
His charges, formally read on Sept. 4, include attempted assault with intent to cause physical injury, stalking in the 4th degree, and harassment in the second degree, case details read.
The arrest and charges are related to a stalking complaint filed in July 2017 by a 43-year-old woman who alleges she was grabbed and harassed by Milano between September 2016 and July.
Milano was released on a $2,500 bail, and is scheduled to appear back in court on Sept. 8
The property manager is under investigation by the Commission on Human Rights and the state Attorney General’s office for allegations of tenant harassment. Milano is also the defendant in a lawsuit filed against him by a condo owner of the building who alleges a history of arbitrary fines and harassment.
