Wake Forest assistant basketball coach charged with assaulting tourist

- The New York City Police Department on Thursday arrested a college basketball coach in connection with an assault in Queens early Sunday morning that ended in a Florida man's death. He was arrested Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018, and charged with assault.

The Daily News and WPIX quoted police officials as saying that Jones punched 35-year-old Sandor Szabo, a Florida resident, in the head during an altercation in the Queens area of Long Island City last Sunday. Szabo never regained consciousness and was taken off life support Tuesday.

Among the cars Szabo allegedly approached was one driven by Jones, which led to their confrontation.

The coach got out, followed Szabo to the sidewalk, clocked him and sped off, police said.

"We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information", a Wake Forest spokesman said Thursday evening in a statement to the Raleigh News & Observer. Szabo later died in the hospital after Jones' punch caused him to hit his head on the pavement. He was ordered to return to court on October 2.

Health officials in Saada told Al Jazeera that 43 people were killed and 61 were wounded in the attack, the majority of whom were children.

According to the New York Post, the charges could be upgraded.

Jones was with his family after the court session, his attorney, Alain Massena, told the AP. The investigation is ongoing.

Mr Szabo's family said he was in New York City to attend a wedding.

Jones, an assistant basketball coach at Wake Forest University, punched Szabo in the face, police said. The Philadelphia native is a 2008 graduate of Arkansas Tech. "Sandor was super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", his company, What If Media, said in a Facebook post Wednesday.
