ALLENTOWN, Pa. — A video of an Allentown police officer with his knee a man’s neck has prompted demonstrations.
A driver passing by captured a video of the arrest Saturday afternoon in front of St. Luke’s Sacred Heart Hospital, KYW-TV reported.
Police have not released the man's identity, body camera footage or information as to what led up to the incident.
About 100 protesters with Black Lives Matter to Lehigh Valley held a demonstration Saturday night in response to the incident, WFMZ reported.
Allentown police said earlier in the month that their use-of-force policy bans choke-holds and neck restraints similar to the one seen in the video.
