Radio-Host Attacker Confesses


Tribune's WPIX will air a report in its newscasts Monday that the government has a confession in the 1992 assault on WABC Radio host Curtis Sliwa, founder and president of Guardian Angels, a weapons-free citizen's crime patrol that began in a tough Bronx neighborhood (or is that redundant?).

WPIX's Mary Murphy reports that the feds are looking to arrest "Junior" Gotti (son of mob boss John Gotti)--after his release from federal prison in a few months--in connection with the assault. That's after Michael “Mikey Scars” Di Leonardo admitted to the assault and implicated Gotti.

Sliwa said he always suspected Gotti was retaliating for Sliwa's on-air criticisms of the Gotti's.

Gotti's attorney disputes Mikey Scars' claims.
