Daniel Gill Biography                                                      Daniel Gill Wiki

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he wants the supermarket worker Daniel Gill to be accused of hitting him on the back as he lobbied for his son’s prosecution, adding that a suspect’s release would mean others could encourage attacking people with opposing political views.

Giuliani described Sunday’s attack at a Staten Island supermarket during a Monday morning news conference on his Facebook page.

Former President Donald Trump’s aide said he was stopping at the ShopRite to promote son Andrew, who is vying for the Republican nomination as governor of New York, and was talking to people when he felt the blow on his back.

Giuliani stumbled forward a step or two but didn’t fall, he said.

The clerk, Daniel Gill, 39, was charged with second-degree assault, according to the New York City Police Department. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. NBC News has contacted Gil’s family for comment.

Giuliani believes the suspect should be fired from his job, saying, “Damn right I think he should be prosecuted.”

“This guy should be locked up to tell other people, ‘(It’s) over, it’s not happening,'” he said. “I think you’ve let Mr. Gill go, a lot more of these crazy pro-choice people are going to start attacking people.”

A ShopRite spokesman told NBC News Monday that Gill has been suspended pending termination.

“We are aware that an incident occurred at our Staten Island store Sunday, instigated by an employee of the store involving former Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Store security observed the incident, responded quickly and police were notified,” the statement said. “We do not tolerate aggression towards anyone.”

Giuliani said the suspect yelled “dirty swear words” at him and accused him of being a “lady killer,” touching on Friday’s Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, a decision that removes the widely supported constitutional right to abortion.
“People attack people, in my case because I am pro-life but respect other people’s position. I don’t protest against other people. I respect the fact that there are differences of opinion in this country,” he said.

Giuliani said he still has pain in his shoulder and plans to see a doctor.

“It hurt all night. It was difficult to sleep. But I’m telling you, it was a very, very hard shot,” he said.

“I’m in good shape for a 78-year-old. He could have easily thrown me to the ground and killed me by hitting my head,” Giuliani continued.

He said he will continue to publicly advertise despite the incident.

“We do not practice vigilantism. I don’t care if we’re on the right, if we’re on the left, if we’re talking about January 6th or yesterday… Let’s not participate. Let’s be peaceful,” Giuliani said before making a political turn and urging listeners to unseat New York leaders.
