Default WATCH: Kwops "Rodney Kang" 2 unruly coons wif batons in Manhattan


WATCH: Police beat 2 men with batons in Manhattan, NYPD investigating

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A pair of NYPD officers were caught on video repeatedly hitting two men with batons in upper Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, prompting an internal investigation.

The two men -- identified as Aaron Griessom, 36, and Sidney Williams, 37 -- were approached by the officers after harassing commuters on the stairs of the 168th Street subway station in Washington Heights.

Griessom and William left the station when police arrived, but they got into the scuffle with officers outside on the street.

In the video, posted to Instagram, the officers are seen hitting one of the men with a baton. A second man is then seen charging one of the officers. They then end up on the ground. Other offices are then seen arriving hitting the man multiple times with a baton.

But before the video began recording, Geirssom swung at one of the police officers, officials said.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said, ""My understanding of the context is the individuals involved, not the officers, the individuals involved were creating a real problem for neighborhood residents.

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said in a statement, “Once again, we are seeing the consequences of lax policies that have allowed a lawless atmosphere to flourish in the subways, endangering both commuters and the cops who respond to protect them."

Both men, who have extensive criminal records, are awaiting arraignment.
