NEW YORK — Police have charged a man who was shot by an officer during a scuffle in a Harlem park.
Police say Daniel Cabrera attacked the officer around 1:30 p.m. while following two men through Marcus Garvey Park.
They say the unarmed 28-year-old kept fighting the officer despite being hit twice with pepper spray.
That's when police say the officer discharged his firearm, striking Cabrera once in the torso.
The White Plains man was hospitalized in stable condition. The officer was treated for facial injuries.
Cabrera is charged with assault, menacing a police officer, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.
Information on his lawyer wasn't immediately available.
