Exclusive video: NYPD says video of officer punching woman outside East NY home 'under review'
A video obtained by News 12 appears to show an NYPD officer punching a woman in the face – an incident that is now under internal review.
The incident happened on Milford Street Friday night in East New York. The suspect has been identified as Jamie Vasquez, 20, who is facing several charges -- including assault on an officer.
Police say they were there for a reason unrelated to that woman. They were trying to arrest a man who was accused of slashing someone's tires back in May. They say Vasquez and several other women surrounded them and began punching the officers.
The NYPD told News 12 that they are "aware of the video and that the incident is under review."
