Three men, including a well-known gang member, are in custody after agents were flooded with water in New York City this weekend.
Shocking footage emerged of groups of young people dumping water on policemen during individual incidents in Brooklyn and Harlem.
In one of the video & # 39; s officers in Harlem on Sunday, a man buoys to a vehicle while about five other men gather around them.
The men throw water on the detainees of buckets. At one point a shirtless man throws an empty red bucket behind the officers. The crowd behind can be heard laughing and cheering as it hits an officer in the head.
On Tuesday, the police issued images of three men wanted for & # 39; mistreatment & # 39; of officers in Harlem by showering officers in the water when they were arrested on Sunday
In the meantime several teenagers were seen in Brooklyn who immersed two other officers with water.
It is unclear whether the officers were looking for someone when the incident occurred. As they walked in a different direction, a male teenager was seen throwing the bucket of water at one of the policemen.
The police are still walking to a store when another child runs after an officer and dumps the bucket on his head.
Both officers were seen soaked in water while they quietly walked back to their patrol car.

The two officers continue to arrest the man, even if one of them is hit in the back by a red bucket of Harlem
When they cross the street, a young man runs upstairs and pours a whole bucket of water on one officer.
Behind the camera a woman can be heard laughing and saying: & (39) Oh (the police) came to talk to them and they offended, they offended them. & # 39;
The NYPD issued a release and said that the officer who was hit with the bucket had pain and swelling right to the back of his head.
On Wednesday, the police gave an update and said a 28-year-old & # 39; known gang member & # 39; was arrested for the Brooklyn incident.
Two men, including a 23-year-old, are in custody in connection with the Harlem case, where police say a woman has also thrown water at her and talked to them.
NYPD Chief Terence Monahan wondered if police officers who ran away after being attacked by members of the public were on the right track on Tuesday
NYPD Chief Terence Monahan claimed that police attacks are reprehensible after footage showed that two officers were showered in the water when they were arrested on Sunday
The police issued images of three wanted men in connection with the Harlem incident on Sunday. They have already arrested two men in connection with the case and have made one arrest in the Brooklyn incident
They issued images of three men involved in the Harlem incident and asked the public to help identify them.
It remains unclear whether one of the arrested men is the same men as in the police images.
The videos caused much outrage on social media, with officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, condemning the actions of the individuals involved.
He tweeted on Tuesday: & # 39; This behavior is shameful. President @realDonaldTrump and I will ALWAYS stand with the brave men and women of our law enforcement officers who serve on the thin blue line every day. & # 39;
Some officials seemed to wonder how the officers responded and claimed that they should not have ignored the behavior by walking away.

In a memo, the NYPD instructed officers to make an arrest if such a thing ever happens again, CNN reported.
The issue was raised by NYPD Chief Terence Monahan during an award ceremony on Tuesday morning, wondering if agents should run away from something like that, says CNN.
He claimed: "While they are making the arrest, there are some guys who thought it was good to throw water and a bucket at the police," he said. "Well, that's not right."
& # 39; Any agent who thinks that's good, that they can run off something like that, may need to reconsider whether this is the profession for them, & # 39; he said as the crowd clapped. & # 39; We don't assume that. & # 39;
On Monday evening, former New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani branded attacks on officers & # 39; completely unacceptable & # 39 ;.

& # 39; The NYPD kept New Yorkers safe from the heat wave and power outages last night & # 39 ;, he wrote. & # 39; We will not tolerate this kind of disrespect. & # 39;
He then pulled out the current mayor Bill De Blasio and said: & # 39; This disrespect for the uniform in NYC is the result of a democratic-progressive (retro-progressive) socialist mayor.
& # 39; This is what happens with contempt of the knee for the police. It only gets worse until these left-wing idiots are defeated. & # 39;
The Blasio quickly shot back and said the crime rates have never been lower in New York City. He resisted: & # 39; If you do not respect our NYPD officers, you respect ALL New Yorkers. We don't tolerate that in our city.
& # 39; The truth is that crime has NEVER been lower in New York City and that is because we bridge the gap between police and communities – a gap that @RudiGiuliani has helped create. & # 39;
NYPD commissioner James P. O & # 39; Neill praised the officers involved for their calm.
He tweeted: & # 39; NYPD police officers are courageously confronted with unknown and sometimes hostile circumstances every time they answer a call.
& # 39; Still, professional and composed, they perform their vital work. As a city and PD, we never accept such a lack of respect. & # 39;
