A group of Ohio police officers have been filmed cheating and repeatedly beating a suspect who complained that he could not breathe and asked for help when the officers submitted him.
The incident took place on Para Avenue in Akron on Sunday and was filmed in part by some of the man's neighbors.
They say he was smoking marijuana when two officers confronted him.
By the time the neighbors had begun filming, the first two policemen, a man and a woman, had him on the ground and were fighting with him to keep him motionless.
The man's face is not seen in the video and has not yet been identified. The Akron Police Department did not respond to several requests for information on Monday morning.
The arrest began with a male and female officer who threw the man to the ground and fought him as he writhed and writhed on the grass. Neighbors say he was not doing anything other than "smoking marijuana"
After fighting to gain control of the man, they controlled him to keep him quiet
When the suspect growled, the male officer crushed him.
They held him on the ground, ordering him to turn on his stomach and without saying anything when he shouted: "What did I do? I did not do anything!
& # 39; Help! I can not breathe! After several minutes, two more officers arrived.
The first one in that pair instantly started hitting the man in the back even though three other officers kept him on the ground.
The shocked looks shouted: "You can not do that! You're not allowed to hit him!" But the cops persisted.
A female officer replied with them: "Are you kidding? & # 39; And he said the man tried to bite her.
More officers arrived to join the arrest seconds later. At the end of the video, there were at least 10 policemen on the scene.
According to WKYC, the suspect was transferred to the hospital but only because he was under the influence of drugs.
Then more officers arrived and one immediately threw himself to hit the man when he arrived.
When the spectators shouted: & # 39; You can not do that! & # 39; The policeman continued to hit the man who moaned and begged for help.
One of the officers argued: & # 39; Are you kidding? & # 39; when the spectators questioned his aggressive demolition
Police say he was a fugitive from Cleveland who was behaving erratically at the time of his arrest.
The department did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's inquiries on Monday morning.
It is not clear if the man was charged or suffered injuries as a result of the aggressive arrest.
The neighbors who filmed the video said he was a veteran who lives on the street.
The arrest occurred on this residential street in Akron on Sunday. The police department has not yet published more details.
