Officer Slams Pregnant Woman Into The Ground
The video shows the pregnant woman intervening in her son’s arrest early Saturday in Sunset Park. Cops grab her and slam her to the pavement, belly first.
They then shoved a friend of the pregnant woman to the ground when she tries to approach.
Police sources said that while cops from the 72nd Precinct were trying to apprehend a 17-year-old man in possession of a knife, several of his family members tried to intervene.
“Oh, my God, she’s pregnant,” one onlooker says in the video.
Members of the community watch group that posted the video on Facebook said that the police used excessive force on the pregnant woman.
The Facebook page for El Grito De Sunset Park was filled with outrage.
“It’s inhumane to be treated like your a f–king animal,” Jasmine Alexander wrote.
The station said the woman claimed police were harassing her son.
“What we see is a woman who’s trying to protect her son, who is being stopped and frisked by police,” Flores told WABC. “And she became a victim. Slammed onto the floor.”
Police sources said that in addition to possession of a weapon, the 17-year-old youth was charged with resisting arrest and harassment.
Two other men were charged with assault and resisting arrest, according to the sources.
One of the women was issued a summons for disorderly conduct, but it wasn’t clear if the pregnant woman was charged, the sources said.
The incident occurred just one week after another cop from the same precinct was suspended for kicking a street vendor in an incident that also was caught on video.
