Leipzig Quartet Attack Victim Launches Law Suit Against 1st Violinist

Leipzig Quartet Attack Victim Launches Law Suit Against 1st Violinist

The 64 year old female victim of an alleged attack by Leipzig String Quartet 1st Violinist Stefan Arzberger, has launched a law suit - claiming he burst into her room, grabbed her by the neck and slammed her head forcefully into furniture until she lost consciousness.

Pamela Robinson, 64 from North Carolina has made claim that the March 27th attack at the Hudson Hotel in New York City, left her with severe bruising around her neck and with popped blood vessels in her eyes.

The suit, filed last week in a Manhattan Supreme Court, stated that the 42 year old violinist “deliberately, savagely and maliciously endeavoured to asphyxiate' his victim.

“I opened the door and there was this humongous stranger and I froze ...” she has told The New York Post, “... I slammed the door and he pushed his way into the room … he pushed me into the closet … he put his hand over my mouth and tried to smother me - and I bit him.”

Arzberger has pleaded 'not guilty' to the attempted murder, assault and strangulation charges, with his lawyer making claim he was the victim of a drug spiking and robbery, earlier the same evening by a transsexual prostitute - and that he has no recollection of the alleged unrelated attack.

The German-based Arzberger has been released on US $100,000 bail, has had his passport seized - and has been placed on strict court orders not to leave the State of New York.

Presumptions of innocence apply.
