A man arrested earlier this month in connection with a brutal daytime attack on a 12-year-old Asian boy in Brooklyn has reportedly been arrested nearly two dozen times in the past.
Police said Jamal McIlwain, 28, attacked the victim with a crutch around 7:40am on November 17 at the intersection of St Paul's Court and St Paul's Place. He was arrested on Wednesday after someone reported he had been acting suspiciously outside an unknown high school.
Surveillance footage of the attack shows a man dressed in dark clothing running towards the boy and hitting him twice with a single crutch. After failing to hit a third time, he "calmly" walks away, leaving the crutch on the sidewalk and heading north to St. Paul's Place, the New York Post reports.

"It's weird how he ran across the street just to hit me," the boy told PIX 11. "When he hit me, it took me a few seconds to process what was going on. I tried to block it with this arm and ran."

McIlwain reportedly spat on a police officer when he was arrested last week. He has since been charged with assault and threats, and injuring a child under the age of 17.
Sources say McIlwain had 23 prior arrests, according to the New York Daily News. Among them was an attempted murder case in which he is said to have shot someone.

At his arraignment Friday, McIlwain reportedly claimed he worked for "NCIS," which is billed as a crime drama that has aired on CBS since 2003. Given that, defense attorney Jonathan Fink said it was "pretty clear" his client "has." mental health problems” and asked for a psychiatric evaluation.

Prosecutors asked for bail to be set at $75,000. In the end, Judge Simiyon Haniff ordered McIlwain held without bail and requested a psychiatric evaluation, the New York Daily News reported.
The attack, which happened near a church, has terrified residents.

"It's kind of sad that something like this could happen and we don't know about it because there are a lot of kids living over here. Hopefully he gets caught because you shouldn't be," a local resident told CBS New York.
