WATCH: Migrants Attack Police in New York City Shelter

A video taken inside a New York City migrant shelter shows five New York Police Department (NYPD) officers trying to detain a struggling suspect as migrants pelt them with objects and seek to interfere with the arrest.

The incident occurred on February 15 as officers tried to detain a suspect at the Randall’s Island migrant shelter.

Hostile shelter residents surrounded the five officers and began to throw bottles, backpacks, and other items at them. Some pushed forward at the officers, attempting to interfere with the arrest. . .

Shelter security reportedly called in the NYPD when a man was “acting in a disorderly fashion,” according to the New York Daily News.

The suspect seen in the video, wearing a white shirt and being detained by the police, was reportedly not a shelter resident. (Read more from “WATCH: Migrants Attack Police in New York City Shelter” HERE)
