The man who allegedly told his grandson's nanny that he was the "black Hitler" in the midst of torturing her was arrested again just after posting bail, officials say.
According to the New York Daily News, Sherman Gamble, 54, was arrested again on Friday on additional charges just as he was being released on $80,000 bail.
Earlier this week, Gamble was arrested for allegedly keeping a 22-year-old woman captive in his Manhattan apartment for three days, beating and torturing her the entire time. The victim claims that, at one point, Gamble screamed "'I am going to kill you. You don’t know who I am. I am the black Hitler'" after rolling up a newspaper and shoving it down her throat.
The woman was finally able to escape after Gamble allowed her to go to the bank. Instead, she ran straight to the 13th Precinct and relayed the entire ordeal to police. Gamble was arrested and charged with attempted murder, kidnapping, assault and strangulation.
The specifics of the additional charges are not clear, but the New York Post claims his initial arrest was a parole violation for a 2012 housing scam. We will update this story here with more information as it becomes available.
