Man accused of beating diplomat wife attacked her because of outfit

The man accused of beating up his British diplomat wife in their Midtown apartment attacked her because of what she wore out of their home that night, prosecutors charged at his arraignment Tuesday night.

Youseff Amroche, 37, — who was originally protected by his wife’s diplomatic immunity, only to have it yanked Tuesday — was charged with felony assault and harassment and ordered held on $7,000 bail at his arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court early Wednesday.

New details about the alleged domestic attack also emerged at the court hearing. Prosecutors alleged Amroche got into an argument with his wife inside their Turtle Bay apartment on Dec. 8 over the clothes she had worn out with him that evening — and then slapped her, put her in a headlock and dragged her around their apartment.

The doorman of the building called 911 when he heard shouting coming from the apartment, prosecutors said.
