When will it be enough? The NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau is investigating a Brooklyn man’s accusations that a police officer stomped on his groin with a boot which resulted in the crushing his scrotum.
Here’s the story according to The NY Daily News:
Corey Green underwent surgery Sunday at Bellevue Hospital to restore the blood flow to his private parts, according to his lawyer Sanford Rubenstein.
“This is certainly an outrageous example of wrongdoing and we are calling on the Brooklyn district attorney’s office to present evidence to a grand jury,” Rubenstein said.
Green, 33, and the NYPD provided significantly different versions of how he was injured Saturday night in Bedford-Stuyvesant. A police spokesman said Green ran into scaffolding after fleeing from police investigating the robbery of a takeout food deliveryman.
Rubenstein said his client told Internal Affairs investigators on Monday that cops burst into his friend’s apartment on Monroe St. at gunpoint and ordered the occupants to go outside and stand in a lineup on the street for the robbery victim.
The NYPD said four men, including Green, were standing in front of the building when the cops looking for the robber approached them.
“One of the police officers grabbed him by the shoulder and the neck and threw him to the ground, and a second officer kicked him,” Rubenstein said.
Cops determined that Green was wanted for an outstanding warrant stemming from a DWI arrest, and took him to the 81st Precinct. There, he complained to a sergeant that he was in pain and was taken to the hospital, where it was determined that he had a serious injury, police said.
“It was inhumane. It was done to inflict a powerful pain,” said Corey’s father John Green, 52.
