The footage shows the woman sitting on a bench, before the man approaches her with what looks to be a plastic bag. He throws the bag at the front of her face and the back of her head repeatedly as she tries to protect herself.

Frank Abrokwa, 37, has been charged with forcible touching, menacing, disorderly conduct and harassment.

After the arrest, Mayor Eric Adams called the incident a “horrific experience for anyone to go through.”

“Human waste or someone spitting in your face, those are real signs of mental health issues … and we really must dig into how we’re dealing with these mental health issues,” Adams said, per the New York Post.
