Police punch pregnant woman and bodyslam her face down on the sidewalk
ROCHESTER, NY — An officer for the Rochester Police Department was recorded on video getting punching a pregnant woman in the back of the head and a body-slamming her face first into a sidewalk.
The woman was yelling loudly and not complying with the officer. While an officer struggled with her, she screamed, “Get off of me, you’re gonna kill my baby.”
"I’m pregnant, I’m pregnant," she yelled.
That’s when an unidentified police officer balled his fist and punched the woman in the back of the head.
The officer followed up his punch by holding his weight against the woman and falling with her onto the sidewalk, face first.
The woman screamed and the bystanders cried out in shock.
