Philadelphia Police Officer Punches Woman In Face

Philadelphia police are investigating one of their own after a video surfaced of an officer punching a woman in the face during a parade. The video went viral after being posted on YouTube.

The officer was allegedly hit with a liquid during the Puerto Rican Day Parade. He then turned to a woman behind him. She started walking away, but he followed and punched her, injuring her mouth and arm.

The woman was cuffed and taken away. The video, taken by an onlooker, reveals blood coming from the woman’s mouth.

The officer is still working for the department but has been restricted to administrative duties.

Lt. Ray Evers responded to the incident: “We were made aware of the video very, very early this morning (Monday). Internal Affairs opened up an investigation in reference to the incident and the actions of that officer. The incident is being fully investigated.

“The video speaks for itself,” he added. “There were people in the crowd throwing items at the officer, water and other things.”
