The New York Times has complained to the city’s police department after one of its photographers said he was assaulted by officers who arrested him on Saturday.
Robert Stolarik, a freelance photographer, claimed a New York Police Department (NYPD) officer “slammed” his camera into his face  before he was dragged to the ground, kicked and arrested.
Stolarik was on assignment with two other reporters in the Bronx when he was stopped by police on Saturday evening.
Police ordered Stolarik to stop taking pictures of a teenage girl being arrested. When he refused, an officer reputedly grabbed Stolarik’s camera and dragged him to the ground.
Stolarik claimed he was then kicked in the back and received scrapes and bruises on his face, legs and arms as a result of the arrest. He was charged with obstructing government administration and of resisting arrest.
