What are the charges for assaulting someone and breaking a collar bone?

Asked over 1 year ago - Brooklyn, NY

A male FTP , 200 pounds pushes a Crete , 130 pounds woman away from him , 5 seconds later losing it grabbing her by the neck and shoulder than proceeding to slam her through the wall breaking the houses beam as well as her collar bone then calmly calling for someone to help her up because , " [ he ] I just hit her " . Than fleeing .

Additional information

Well what's the difference from 1st and 2nd degree assault ? I assumed a broken bone would constitute 1st especially since the wall and the beam could constitute as a deadly weapon(again assuming ) and knowingly performing this act on own free will. No drugs no liquor . Though im sure everything would be plea bargained down to something else, but for argument sake let's take plea bargaining out of the equation what degree of assault would this be constituted as ?

    Answered . The wall is not a "deadly weapon" or "dangerous instrument" its an assault second with a serious physical injury for protracted pain and suffering. The plea should be to a felony or misdemeanor with probation unless the defendant has a bad prior record.
