Levi Aron, slayer of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky, attacked female prison officer

A Brooklyn man who butchered an 8-year-old boy attacked a female prison officer in an upstate prison over the weekend.
Levi Aron, 42, tried to yank the jailer into his cell inside the Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg on Saturday at around 8:45 a.m., according to the union representing prison officers.
In 2012, Aron pleaded guilty to kidnapping and cutting up Leiby Kletzky after the boy got lost as he wandered on 18th Ave. in Borough Park.
Before the murder, Aron kept the boy in his nearby apartment and brought the youngster to a wedding in Rockland County.
The hardware clerk freaked out when the community launched a major manhunt to find the youngster. So he drugged him, smothered him with a towel and then chopped up his body. The majority of his remains were found in dumpster about a mile away from the apartment.
Leiby’s feet were discovered in Aron’s freezer.
As for the prison assault, the union representing prison officers says Aron suddenly snapped after the officer asked him to clean up his cell. Aron yanked her arm but she was able to escape.
The officer suffered a cut to her left eye and bruising on her arm and knees. She was taken to a local hospital.
Aron, who is serving 37 years to life in prison, may be hit with added criminal charges.
He was moved out of the general population “to undergo the internal disciplinary process while the state police conducts an investigation for possible criminal charges,” said Patrick Bailey, a spokesman for the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.
Michael Mazzella, president of the New York State Corrections Officers and Police Benevolent Association, urged Fallsburg authorities to take action against Aron.
“We need our local district attorneys to prosecute inmates that attack and injure staff so a firm message is sent that if you attack staff, you will be held accountable,” he said in a statement.
