NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two New York City police officers were arraigned Wednesday after surrendering to face criminal charges for the alleged beating of a teenage drug suspect in Brooklyn.
Officer David Afanador is charged with felony assault, and Tyrane Isaac is charged with misdemeanor assault, WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported. Both pleaded not guilty.
“We indicted these two police officers because of the violence they committed on a 16-year-old boy,” Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson told CBS 2’s Dick Brennan.
The incident, which was caught on surveillance video and posted on DNAinfo last month, stems from the alleged marijuana arrest of 16-year-old Kareem Tribble on Aug. 29.Comments
