Nachum Gross, 72, is the south Florida man accused of aggravated battery after police said he pushed another man, identified as Gerald Steiglitz, 86, out of a condo elevator. Gross’ attorney has said his client was protecting himself and his wife against the coronavirus. The condominium currently allows only two people on elevators at a time in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus.
Steiglitz stumbled into a table and bruised his thigh, according to a police report obtained by CBS Miami. Inmate records show Gross turned himself in to Miami Beach police on June 2 after the charge was announced.
