Yonkers apartment superintendent has been sentenced to state prison for assaulting a tenant with an axe.

Westchester County District Attorney, Miriam E. Rocah, announced this in a statement on Thursday April 28, 2022.

According to the statement, the former superintendent of an apartment building in Yonkers, Anan Badan, 59, was sentenced on April 28, 2022, to three years in state prison, with three years of post-release supervision. 

A jury convicted Badan after trial of Assault in the Second Degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Third Degree, both felonies.     

"On Nov. 2, 2020, at approximately 9:45 p.m., Badan confronted a tenant about a noise complaint in an apartment building in Yonkers. 

"Badan then left the victim’s apartment and returned moments later with an axe, which he swung at the victim. The victim sustained bruises to her chest and a laceration to her hand as a result of the attack," the statement reads.   

The Yonkers Police Department arrested Badan and investigated the incident.   

The case was before Judge Barry Warhit in Westchester County Court, and was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Shumejda of the Trials and Investigations Division.
