NYPD Cop Who Punched Bronx Woman 20 Times While In His Underwear Dodges Jail

An NYPD cop who broke into a woman’s Bronx home and beat her up in his underwear, will not serve any time for the bizarre attack.

Decorated Officer Eugene Donnelly was sentenced to three years’ probation for misdemeanor assault in Bronx Criminal Court Thursday. He must also undergo alcohol abuse treatment.

He avoided jail time because the victim told prosecutors he needed rehab, not time in a cell, authorities said.

“I am relieved to have the formal aspect of this over,” the 33-year-old woman told the Daily News. Donnelly remains on modified duty, according to an NYPD spokesman.

NYPD Police officer Eugene Donnelly is awarded the Police Combat Cross during the 2014 Medal Day on June 10, 2014 at 1 Police Plaza in Manhattan, New York.

In June 2014, Donnelly was honored at the NYPD’s Medal Day with the Police Combat Cross, the department’s second-highest honor, for arresting a teen gunman after a wild Bronx gunfight two years earlier. The next morning, Donnelly, wearing only his underwear, barged into the victim’s Woodlawn home and punched her up to 20 times. He then drank milk from her refrigerator and ran off, police sources said.

Donnelly’s lawyer argued the cop was sleepwalking and suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. He pleaded guilty to the assault charge in March.
