Bronx cabby Mamadou Diallo was looking for a parking spot outside his building when he got a call from his 50 year old wife that filled him with shock and fury.
She said a stranger had just tried to rape her in their apartment — and was still upstairs.
Diallo grabbed a tire iron and did what most alpha husbands in the same situation would do: He rushed to his wife’s aid and then bludgeoned the pervert.
The attack killed career criminal Earl Nash, 43 — and left Diallo facing assault and weapons charges.
The whack-a-mole mayhem left Nash with a fractured skull, his blood splattered Monday night in the elevator and a hallway, sources said.
Mamadou Diallo, 61, initially faced a charge of manslaughter in the case, but charges against him were reduced to assault and criminal possession of a weapon. A cheering crowd of supporters met him outside the Bronx criminal courthouse.
