Two spats, one arrest

Cops arrested a 27-year-old who allegedly beat up a Flatbush man on May 20, then chased the same man around town with a knife two days later.

Prosecutors said that when suspect Omar Gourzong was finally in custody on May 22, he was charged in both incidents.

Police were told that he allegedly beat up a man he had a longtime dispute with at the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Beverley Road. Before he broke off his attack, Gourzong allegedly threatened to kill the man, according to court documents.

He apparently attempted to make good on his threats two days later, where he was seen allegedly chasing the victim around the same corner.

Police did not say what prompted these attacks.
