The above video shows the tail end of an incident yesterday in which NYPD officers allegedly slammed a 16-year-old girl’s face against the floor of a Downtown Brooklyn Chinese restaurant and threw a 15-year-old girl through the establishment’s front window, shattering it. According to witnesses, the altercation began when cops ordered everyone out of the restaurant and one of the girls refused. According to Brooklyn Paper, when that girl’s friend stood up to leave, the violence began.
Her 16-year-old buddy, a student at Boys and Girls High School in Bedford-Stuyvesant, started to leave, but officers stopped her and began questioning her, said Ta Kim McCollum, who was ordering with the crew.
Two cops then threw the Brooklyn kid to the ground and started slamming her face on the floor, bloodying it, bystanders stated.
The first girl tried to intervene, and three cops tackled her and sat on her. Later, as cops were leading her out of the restaurant, they shoved her forward, and through the large front window. In the video, the first girl you see was pushed through the window, and the second girl had her face slammed on the floor. If you were there, or have any other information about the incident, let us know.
