An NYPD officer was attacked by two men in the Bronx last night. The incident was caught on video by onlookers, and posted to Twitter. According to the New York Post, onlookers reported the assault, while some were heard encouraging the assault of the suspects. The footage shows two men throwing an unknown object at the officer who is on the ground struggling with another protestor. Once the suspect hits the officer with the object, the other suspect manages to run away. The officer stands up but appears to be somewhat shook. It appears that he may have sustained a head injury in the altercation. The officer then draws his gun, although he does not point it at anyone and the crowd disperses.
