A viral video showing a young woman getting beaten and stripped while a room full of men recorded the incident has many demanding the police get involved.
In the video, the unidentified woman was accused of stealing weed by another woman and several men. When the woman says she does not want to be searched, she is punched multiple times and eventually stripped down. The group creates a barricade between her and the door while they assault her.
At the end of the video, they realize she does not have any drugs, so they tell her to leave — but not before they threaten her with more violence if she reports the incident.
Portions of the 7-minute video went viral on social media
The entire video is extremely graphic and humilating to the victim. It was originally posted to Facebook and shared by World Star Hip Hop.
The attack against the woman resulted in a cry for police intervention
The Facebook account where the video first appeared has been deactivated, but many are still hoping the assailants are found
BET News has reached out to the NYPD regarding the video. They have not yet commented.
