Police charged the robbery suspect, who is from Brownsville, with assault, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.”

According to Gothamist:

“McFarland, who recently moved to the city from San Francisco to intern at a fashion company, suffered a broken eye socket, nose and jaw, as well as a gash on the back of his head, missing teeth and massive swelling.”
