Assemblyman not happy with how NYPD treated man at a youth center


Following the violent arrest of a man at a Jewish youth center,  New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind and others are calling for a full investigation into the incident that occurred at the ALIYA Center on East New York Avenue in Crown Heights on Oct. 8, CBS New York reports.

The NYPD told 1010 WINS that police received a 911 call about a dispute involving a man who was trespassing at the location and refused to leave.

A surveillance video that was made public by CrownHeights.info has no audio but shows officers asking the man to leave the property. The man, described as intoxicated, belligerent and combative, refused to leave and threatened officers with violence if they made him move, police told 1010 WINS.
