City Employee Attacks Girlfriend and Cop at Giorgio Hotel

April 9, 2018 By Tara Law

A city employee was arrested after attacking her girlfriend— and the police officer who arrived to arrest her— at the Giorgio Hotel in Long Island City/Astoria yesterday.

Human Resources Administration employee Octayvia Scott, 26, was arrested around 2:05 p.m. after an argument with her 26-year-old girlfriend at the 38-60 13th St. hotel turned physical.

Scott screamed profanities as she punched and bit the victim, leaving the woman with minor cuts and bruises on her face, arms and body, police say. Scott then kicked an officer as the police tried to put her under arrest.

Scott was arrested and charged with third degree assault, resisting arrest, assault on a police officer, harassment and disorderly conduct.
