FAR ROCKAWAY — A Far Rockaway man who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the fatal July 2010 assault of a Good Samaritan who attempted to halt an attack on a transsexual woman has been sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the Queens district attorney.

The defendant, identified by the district attorney as Daryl Reid, 24, was assaulting an unidentified transsexual woman in Far Rockaway when Richard Salter, 49, tried to intervene.

According to the DA, Reid and two other suspects accosted Salter with Reid stabbing him numerous times. Salter died on a stoop after fleeing the attack, the DA said.

The two co-defendants — Terril Pinnok and Jahvaughn Garrison, both of Far Rockaway — pleaded guilty to first-degree gang assault and are presently awaiting sentencing.
