A video of an arrest in New York’s Harlem neighborhood has gone viral on social media. The video shows a chaotic situation in which a man is arrested by the police. A young woman, Tamani Crum (19), seems to know the man and attacks one of the officers. She even seems to hit him. The police officer responds with what appears to be a hard punch, causing her to fall backwards onto the sidewalk.

The woman was arrested and taken into custody. Neighbors are now requesting an investigation into the New York Police Department NYPD. “He just knocked her unconscious, he’s no better than the people who knock each other out on the street,” Crum’s grandmother told CBS2. NYPD sources tell CBS2 an investigation is underway, but add that the agent’s actions appear justified. The first arrest was reportedly part of an attempted murder investigation. Police say the suspect, 22-year-old Elvin James, allegedly had a loaded gun at the time. Crum will appear in court on October 11.(svo)
