Third Man Charged with Assault in McDonald’s Beating

NORTH ADAMS — The third man accused in the June beating of a city man at McDonald’s is being held on $75,000 cash bail.

David Landfear, Jr., 28, of 10th Street in Troy, N.Y., was wanted by North Adams Police until being arrested in Rensselaer County, N.Y., last month. He was held in Rensselaer County Jail while awaiting his extradition to Northern Berkshire District Court.

Landfear was arraigned Friday on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, aggravated assault and battery, and assault to maim.

In lieu of $75,000 cash bail, Landfear is being held at Berkshire County Jail and House of Correction.

Police allege Landfear was one of three men to assault Todd Walker at the North Adams McDonald’s in June. Walker was taken to Albany Medical Center as a result of his injuries.

McDonald’s security footage allegedly showed Landfear kicking Walker in the stomach and chest as he lay on the ground, according to the police report filed by North Adams Police Officer Gregory Onorato.

Police were able to identify Landfear through an anonymous tip, Onorato stated.

Walker suffered cranial fractures near the eye, cheek, and temple, as well as significant hearing loss in his right ear. He was released from the hospital two days later.
