Surveillance video captured what appears to be a New York City Police lieutenant assaulting a 11-year-old 6th-grade elementary school girl in February of 2015 on a street corner in the Bronx.

The video shows the officer grabbing her from a building. The girl is seen resisting the officer’s arrest. He then pulls her to the pavement while trying to handcuff her. She continues to resist arrest until he was eventually able to handcuff her. The officer led her away in cuffs based on the suspicion that she stole a smartphone.
