Logan and a pair of thugs are accused of snatching Chowdhury’s wallet, which contained his credit card and NYPD ID; his cell phone and car keys, according to the criminal complaint.

The credit card was used to purchase unspecified items at a Bronx store, the complaint said.

“I mean, everyone uses the card. It’s like the second, third time I’ve done this. The third time. I will never do this again,” Logan told police, according to the complaint.

Chowdhury suffered a skull fracture and bleeding in the brain, according to family members and police.

He was placed in a medically induced coma, according to the criminal complaint.

Logan denies doing anything wrong escorted by the police from the 43rd Police Station Friday night.

A cousin, who identified only as Laroya, said outside the Bronx courthouse on Saturday that Logan lived in the South and had only visited New York for a few weeks.

“He’s a good boy. He just graduated from high school,” he said. “He didn’t get into trouble. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

He went on to say he was with friends who “went and did something and he didn’t know what they were going to do. He is innocent,” he said.

Logan is due in court Wednesday.
