The New York City Anti-Violence project (AVP) - www.avp.org - is outraged by an incident of police violence that occurred in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn on Sunday, June 3, 2013.

Three openly gay men, Josh Williams, Ben Collins, and Antonio Maenza, reported that they were walking past the 79th Precinct when an NYPD officer accused one of the men of public urination and attacked him, throwing him against a police car. The officer was joined by other officers who also attacked the man, throwing him to the ground and pepper spraying him while he was in handcuffs. The survivor was handcuffed tightly, causing lacerations. The survivor's injuries were treated at a hospital, where he was again restrained with wrist and ankle cuffs. The group of officers also arrested the other two survivors.

AVP has obtained video of the assault from the survivors.
