42-year-old father of 3 dies 2 days after brutal attack in the Bronx
A man’s family is recounting his heartbreaking final moments after they say he was beaten to death on a street in the Bronx.
They say 42-year-old Geuris Guillermo died on July 27, just two days after he was attacked at the corner of East 176th Street and Castor Place. He leaves behind three children.
Still bruised and bandaged, Guillermo’s brother Ambioris spoke to News 12 where the incident took place and where he says he found his brother. 
He says that on the night of July 25, he was rear-ended just a few feet away and that when he tried to get out of his car, the men in another car started to beat him. 
“They didn't let me get out of the car, they started punching and kicking me on the floor right away. I couldn't see anybody because I was on the floor and when I got up, I just ran away,” said Ambioris Guillermo. 
He says he managed to run away and called his brother, Geuris, to help him. He says when they returned to the car, they found the windshield smashed. 
Ambioris says a larger group returned and started to beat them again. He says he ran away thinking his brother was behind him, but soon returned to the scene to find his brother on the ground. 
Now just days after Geuris’ death, friends and family are calling for justice as some of the men involved are still on the run. 
Police have arrested 29-year-old Thomas Ellington and 27-year-old Luciano Norales. Both are facing gang assault and robbery charges.
