New York Police left Kevin Diaby, 20, from Harlem, New York, in a puddle of his own blood on Tuesday evening after he caught him on the street and slammed his head several times in the concrete
Disturbing images have emerged, in which a young black man was repeatedly beaten in the head when he was pinned to the ground by the police in New York.
Kevin Diaby needed stitches to close a large wound above his left eye after his head was thrown on the street when he was arrested after a small traffic stop in Harlem on Tuesday night.
Horrified bystanders filmed the 20-year-old who was being held by a NYPD officer while another hit him repeatedly in the head and left him in a puddle of his own blood.
A spectator by the name of Monica, who refused to give her last name, filmed the disturbing incident.
Diaby and his sister, Fraton Diaby, 24, told activists that they were trying to park in a car at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 130th Street in East Harlem around 6:30 PM Tuesday.
Several officers approached the vehicle and confronted Kevin Diaby, the driver, because he was unable to signal & # 39; because his alarm lights were not on.

Diaby and his sister were arrested on the spot, but their charges were later withdrawn, Spectrum News said
After investigation, New York Police spokesperson Sophia Mason said officers discovered that Kevin had no driver's license and that his uninsured vehicle had a suspended registration.
Fraton, who was sitting in the passenger seat when the police stopped the couple, told Spectrum News she tried to reach into the car to grab her charger before the police seized the vehicle. Video shows that she is being chased away by an officer.
Police said Diaby then reached into the car and pushed past the officer who was driving it to be confiscated, but witness Monica, who filmed the meeting, claims that is not true.
Diaby & # 39; s sister, Fraton Diaby, 24, said the police used excessive force against her brother. Officers claim the young man pushed one of them on the scene, but witnesses said the officer who defeated Diaby was the attacker
& # 39; The officer was the aggressor & # 39 ;, she told the Daily Mail via email. & # 39; The officers were very aggressive, they used excessive force unnecessarily. & # 39;
Monica & # 39; s video showed that the officer put Kevin out on the street and threw his head in the concrete several times.
Several community activists, including Iesha Sekou from Street Corner Resources and Hawk Newsome from Black Lives Matter Greater New York, were called on the spot.
Newsome later confronted officers in the 32nd district and Harlem who told him that Diaby had been taken to Harlem Hospital for treatment.
Spectrum News reports that all charges against Diaby and his sister, including opposing arrest and obstructing government administration, have been canceled.
Family supporters say they plan to take legal action against NYPD.
