"Newt lands on his back and Graves immediately sets upon him, casting spells in a whip-like motion with increasing vigour. Graves’s immense power is evident, as Newt writhes on the ground, unable to stop him. […] Graves continues to whip Newt, a manic, crazed look in his eyes."
— Grindelwald unleashes this spell on Newt Scamander[src]

This unidentified spell (incantation unknown) was used by the Dark Wizard Gellert Grindelwald against Newt Scamander in the New York City Subway in 1926, during the Obscurus attack on New York. It manifested itself in the form of a bolt of white lightning. It was very painful to be struck with, as Grindelwald used it to torture Newt Scamander upon overpowering him, and potentially deadly.[1]
