Video posted to YouTube shows a NYPD Officer Striking a suspect multiple times in the head during an arrest.
The incident happened on New Year’s morning in the Bronx.
Facebook user and apparent witness Alexis Jasmin described the incident: “As im riding to the hair salon just now smfh ! This man was already in his car and the police were in the van getting ready to pull off. Granted the man did stick his head out the window and say a few choice words. But please tell me why the cops got out the van, snatched him out of his car and proceeded to do this to him . Please explain to me why the officer kept bashing his face like that . This is exactly why i hate the police . His hands were already tied and he kept hitting the man in the face until bloody. RIDICULOUS!!”
The NYPD says they are aware of the video and are investigating.
