The NYPD has arrested two men after an incident in a Manhattan park where a woman allegedly had a dirty diaper rubbed in her face.

Authorities say that Juarde Benn, 20, of Brooklyn, and Saqunn Jackson, 23, of the Bronx, are facing several charges in connection to the incident, including aggravated harassment and stalking.

Police say that on Sunday, January 10, near Madison Square Park in the Flatiron District, a group of people surrounded the 33-year-old victim, shoving her around and hitting her in the head with an egg.

They also knocked her phone to the ground with an umbrella.

The woman then ran away, but the group followed her, with one of the men spraying her with silly string while a second man hit her with a skateboard. A third person attacked her with the diaper.
