VIDEO: NYPD Officers Punched, Pushed During Harlem Arrest

An attack on two New York City police officers was caught on video as they attempted to make an arrest in Harlem Friday night.

The 36-second cellphone video starts off with a man pushing an officer from the 32nd Precinct trying to handcuff his sister near 144th Street and 8th Avenue around 11:30 p.m. The sister, Asia Banks, was being arrested for interfering with and pushing officers after they stopped her brother for having an open bottle of cognac, the New York Post reports.

"That’s my sister," the man, identified by cops as Terrell Mitchell, 26, can be heard yelling before he sucker punches the male officer twice in the back of the head, knocking off his glasses.

Banks, 38, then started to resist and began pushing officers, at one point reaching for a female officer's gun in her holster, cops said.

Mitchell was charged with assault on a police officer, obstruction of governmental administration and criminal possession of a weapon for having a razor blade in his pocket, cops said.

Banks was also charged with assault on a police officer, obstruction of governmental administration and resisting arrest.

Both officers were taken to area hospitals and treated for minor injuries.
