A man is facing several charges including harassment after allegedly attacking and robbing a Queens councilman Wednesday.
Daniel Dromm says it all began when he used his phone to photograph the man who was in a truck blocking traffic outside his Jackson Heights office just after 12 p.m.
"When he got to this corner, he lost it and he went berserk and he started screaming and yelling and charged across the street and he said, 'No photographs, no photographs, no effin photographs.' And he's coming over and he pushes me. He tries to grab the camera out of my hands and when he's trying to grab it, he either comes down and hits me in the face or punches me, and then hits me again in the chest, and pushes me back and he has my phone now in his hands," Dromm said.
John Muriel, 43, is charged with robbery, criminal possession of stolen property, and harassment.
