The incident took place at the intersection of 168th Street and Sheridan Avenue on Sunday night, and a street camera was able to capture the incident.

“It's terrible, anytime anyone is attacked, said Chief Jeffrey Maddrey, NYPD Chief of Patrol. “It's terrible when New York City police officers are attacked for doing their often difficult and dangerous jobs."
