Bronx woman claims police brutality
A Bronx woman is claiming the NYPD barged into her apartment during her son's birthday party and attacked her family Wednesday afternoon.
Miriam Jiminez, a resident of 2645 Third Avenue, says two NYPD officers showed up at her apartment and accused her and her neighbors of smoking in the hallway. She says she told them that her apartment door was open because it was hot.
Jiminez says more than 20 officers stormed in and began hitting her daughter and her boyfriend. She says she started screaming because she couldn't believe what was happening.
Residents claim an officer left behind a Taser gun and a police badge.
Two men were arrested during the incident. It was not clear what they were charged with.
The NYPD has not yet returned a call to comment on this story.
