New York — Two New York City police officers are facing criminal charges in the videotaped beating of a teenage marijuana suspect.

David Afanador and Tyraine Isaac were expected to surrender and be arraigned on Wednesday.

Security video from Aug. 29 captured the 16-year-old slowing down on a Brooklyn sidewalk as the officers caught up to him.

It shows an NYPD officer identified as Isaac hitting the teen with a roundhouse punch. Seconds later, as the teen tries to surrender, Afanador appears to hit him with his pistol. The beating continues until the teen drops to the ground and is handcuffed.

The case comes after the July death of an unarmed man, Eric Garner, during a videotaped arrest on Staten Island.

There was no immediate comment from a law firm representing the officers.
