A New York City man accused of smearing feces on a New York City subway rider had his face scalded with boiling water after another inmate attacked him at Rikers Island, Fox News Digital has learned. 

Frank Abrokwa, 37, is expected to have permanent facial scarring after an inmate who goes by the name of “Burns” attacked him with boiling water at the Anna M. Kross Correctional Facility, a jailhouse source confirmed to Fox News Digital.

In February, Abrokwa allegedly defecated in a bag before he approached a 43-year-old woman who was sitting on a bench inside a Bronx subway station at East 241st Street and “struck her in the face and the back of the head with human feces,” police have said. 

Video of the attack shows Abrokwa standing behind the woman as he continues to strike her in the head before walking away. According to local reports, he had tried hitting on the woman minutes earlier.

Abrokwa was charged with assault, reckless endangerment, menacing, disorderly conduct, and harassment. However, he was released without bail due to the nonviolent nature of the misdemeanors.

A suspect identified as Abrokwa was seen on video smearing feces on woman’s face in the New York Subway on Feb. 21.

Abrokwa was being held on bail at the facility on the infamous Rikers Island for an unrelated incident where he allegedly shattered a glass window with a dumbbell at the Treasure Island Storage Facility in Harlem after his release for the alleged feces attack.

The 37-year-old reportedly has a rap sheet going back to the 1990s, with at least 20 unsealed prior arrests and charges consisting of robbery, assault, forcible touching, criminal possession of stolen property and aggravated harassment, police said.
