Intent is not required for assault in NY. Recklessness is sufficient. Also worth noting that there is a separate misdemeanor called harassment, which requires a course of conduct and a purpose (but nothing physical). In a case like this, it would likely be charged also. I am surprised anyone finds any of this excusable for any reason but so be it.
