The alleged fiend accused of stomping on an Asian woman’s head in a Midtown hate attack previously told a New York parole board that he had an excellent relationship with his mother and “loved” her — despite knifing her to death years earlier.
Brandon Elliot, 38, had been locked up for killing his mother in 2002 and denied parole twice but was then granted release by the board in 2019.
In a interview with the board that year, Elliot insisted he and his mother had a loving relationship before he flew into a rage during a fight and stabbed her to death in The Bronx.
“I had an excellent relationship. She was a hard-working parent. She worked hard, she worked for the welfare department. She raised me, she took care of me, and I loved her,” Elliot told the board, according to a partially redacted transcript reviewed by The Post.
Elliot added that he regretted the slaying and was reminded of it on a daily basis.
“I would take it back, you know, I loved my mom,” he said, according to the transcript.
The convicted killer said he knifed his mother three times in the chest after the two got into a fight on a hot day.
“It was a horrible day, one I can barely remember. It was hot in New York City at that time. … I said something, she said some bad words, and it resulted, led up to her death,” he told the parole board.
Soon after the interview, the parole board deemed Elliot fit to re-enter society, and he was cut loose from prison.
While living in a Manhattan homeless shelter in March of this year, Elliot drew national outrage when he was allegedly captured on video mercilessly punching and kicking his 65-year-old Asian victim in front of an apartment building on West 43rd Street.
“F–k you, you don’t belong here!” he allegedly screamed at the woman.
Elliot is back behind bars for the hate attack after being denied bail.
He was hit with two counts of second-degree assault as a hate crime and one count of attempted assault in the first degree as a hate crime for the beating.
