Bobby Williams, 27, of Manhattan, faces charges of strangulation, assault and second-degree robbery, according to police.

The arrest stems from the Aug. 5 attack of a woman inside a diner on West 14th Street, police said.

Police said the woman took cellphone video of Casanova, whose real name is Caswell Senior, and two others when the group tried to take her phone and delete the video.

Niya Rucker provided images of her bloodied face after she said she was attacked by rapper Casanova and his entourage on Aug. 5, 2018.

The victim, Niya Rucker, later spoke to PIX11, claiming she was filming her food on Instagram live, not recording the artist.

Williams is accused of choking Rucker unconscious then throwing her to the floor. Senior and an unidentified woman then allegedly punched Rucker in the face.

Rucker provided images of her bloodied face to PIX11, and had stitches on her chin days after the assault.

Senior was arrested 10 days after the incident on a robbery charge.
