Man arrested for beating 12-year-old Brooklyn boy with crutch was once arrested for attempted murder

The man who was nabbed for beating a 12-year-old Brooklyn boy in the face with a crutch was once arrested for attempted murder, sources said.

Jamal McIlwain, 28, randomly attacked the youth at the intersection of St. Pauls Court and St. Pauls Place in Flatbush around 7:40 a.m. Nov. 16, according to police.

McIlwain was arrested Wednesday after a 911 call was made for a man acting erratically outside an unspecified high school.

When police arrived at the scene, the “disorderly” man spit on an officer, cops said.

The officers recognized him as the man wanted for the crutch assault and charged him with assault, acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17 and menacing.

Before the attack, McIlwain picked up a crutch from a garbage can, police said.
