Defendants charged in New City assault and robbery

Additional defendants have been charged in a violent Rockland County assault and robbery last year.
Two of the three are accused of participating in the beating. The third individual allegedly monitored the attack through a video-chat application.
The incident occurred in New City. The victim was forced to strip naked, beaten with a baseball bat, and stabbed while being left in a pile of snow.
It all stemmed from a quantity of marijuana the defendants believed that the victim had stolen, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Two other defendants have already pleaded guilty and were sentenced to prison earlier this year.
