BROOKLYN - Two Brooklyn women are alleging that they were victims of police brutality nearly a month ago.

The women claim police officers beat them and yelled anti-gay slurs at them in front of the IFU Lounge on the corner of Nostrand and Atlantic avenues.

Neighbors had called police to the location because they heard a fight break out. The two women say although they were not involved in the altercation, police attacked them with nightsticks. One neighbor says it was a chaotic scene.

"They beat her so badly," says Delores Crawford, who says she witnessed the alleged brutality. "They had their knees in her, beating her with sticks."

The NYPD says it is investigating the brutality claim.
