This video captures NY police beating a surrendering, unarmed teen during a marijuana arrest

A video uncovered by the DNAinfo news site captures an unarmed 16-year-old being hit in the face with a gun by an NYPD officer after raising his hands to surrender during a marijuana arrest. The teen, Kahreem Tribble, was accused of possessing “17 small bags of marijuana” and disorderly conduct. In the video, he can be seen running before stopping and turning around to face officer Tyrane Isaac, who throws a punch at him. Another officer, David Afanador, then arrives with his gun drawn and pointed at Tribble before hitting him in the face with it. After a few moments, Isaac punches Tribble again. Afanador then returns to the scene with a canvas bag—the bag that Tribble was allegedly using to carry marijuana—and hits Tribble in the face with it.

The footage, from Aug. 29, appears to be from a surveillance camera attached to a nearby storefront.
