A 24-year-old man who police allege was brutally beaten by a bouncer outside a South Richmond Hill club last week has died from his injuries.
Authorities said Deosarran Ramdular was taken off life support by his family over the weekend, less than one week after an early morning altercation with Kristian Sorbero, 26, outside of Club Moka at 130-55 91st Ave. in Richmond Hill left him brain dead.
Witnesses to the March 18 altercation at about 4:30 a.m. said Sorbero repeatedly punched and kicked the victim in the face and head, causing multiple facial fractures, lacerations and bleeding that resulted in brain damage, according to the criminal complaint filed by the Queens district attorney’s office.
Sorbero was initially charged with assault and ordered held on $500,000 bail, but cops said the charges will likely increase since the victim has died.
This is not the first brush with the law for Sorbero, who was arrested on charges of assault and robbery outside of the same nightclub in early February. According to the criminal complaint in that case, Sorbero is accused of punching a man twice in the face and fracturing his jaw, then allowing another unnamed man to steal the victim’s wallet and cell phone.
A call to Club Moka went unanswered.
The victim’s mother and father, Lillawatee and Ramdular Baboolall, said they were in disbelief that the youngest of three boys would not be coming home.
“There are no words to describe what I have heard and what I have seen,” said Ramdular Baboolall. “He was a joyful, helpful kid.”
