A Brooklyn woman who had just gotten out of the shower was dragged from her apartment by about a dozen NYPD officers in a chaotic scene in mid-July, and the entire incident was caught on tape. The officers, who were responding to a domestic disturbance call in her building, then stood by while the woman sat topless and exposed in the hallway, according to video that emerged Friday.
The officers were reportedly responding to a domestic disturbance call from a different apartment in her building, which led them to Denise Stewart's door on July 13. According to reports, NYPD got a 911 call to the apartment building's address, but didn't have an apartment number for where the alleged incident was taking place.
Upon entering the building, they heard shouting from Stewart's apartment, and proceeded to knockStewart, 48, peeked out of the door, but was wearing only a towel, which she had wrapped around her body and underpants. As she cracked the door open, Stewart was dragged into the hallway by the NYPD officers.
On the video, which was obtained by New York Daily News, the scuffle that ensues can be seen as family and bystanders are heard screaming protests of, "Are you serious? That's a female!" as the officers act, but they're not deterred by the cries.
