Final Suspect Arrested in Postal Attack By Brendan Brosh

The third and final suspect in the attack of a postal worker on Beach 126 Street last month has been arrested.

Eliasaph Dorilas, 20, of Rockaway Park, was arrested on February 25 in connection with the assault. Dorilas has been charged with two counts of attempted robbery in the second degree and one count of assault in the second degree.

Police say that the twin brothers who were arrested on the day of the assault refused to give up the name of the third suspect because they knew him only by his street name, "El."

Detective Charles Rizzuto of the 100 Squad, however, painstakingly went through crime records and found a reference to "El" with his real name.

Dorilas was then arrested at his home.

He was arraigned On February 26 in front of Queens Criminal Court Judge Dorothy Chin-Brandt. Bond was set at $2,500; $1,500 cash. Dorilas’ next court date will be on April 1.

Dorilas, along with twin brothers Richard and Nelson Ramos, are accused of attacking and attempting to rob a postal worker on the 400 block of Beach 126 on February 21. The postal worker "sustained a laceration and substantial pain to his upper lip," according to the indictment.

While the Ramos brothers were caught within an hour of the crime, Dorilas as the third alleged suspect, managed to evade authorities for four days.

At this time no federal charges are being pursued in the case against Richard and Nelson Ramos.
