Man who recorded racist bus rant allegedly caught on camera screaming vulgar message

WESLEY HILLS -

The man who recorded a woman's racist rant on a Rockland bus is now behind bars, allegedly caught on camera screaming his own vulgar message.

Vladimir Philidor shot a viral video last month of a woman yelling racial slurs at a Transport of Rockland bus driver.

Genesis Celamora, 9, says she captured video of the 33-year-old Philidor on his own rant.

Celamora says Phlidor and his girlfriend, 34-year-old Martha Pinos, got into an argument with her mother and father – Philidor’s landlord - inside their Wesley Hills home Sunday night.

The fight happened where the couple rented out a room in the house located on Route 306.

"He had punched my mom on the arm and the lady was choking her. I was trying to defend my mom,” she says.

Celamora claims Philidor also attacked her father and then went after her 1-year-old baby brother, so she quickly called 911.

Ramapo police arrested both Philidor and Pinos, who were arraigned at Wesley Hills Village Court.

Pinos was released, but Philidor is now at the Rockland County Jail on $25,000 bail.

Officials say he has been charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
           
Philidor is expected to be back in court later this week.
