New York Police left Kevin Diaby, 20, of Harlem, New York, laying in a pool of his own blood Tuesday evening after pinning him to the street and punching  his head into the concrete multiple times

Disturbing footage has emerged showing a young black man being repeatedly punched in the head as he was pinned to the ground by police in New York.

Kevin Diaby needed stitches to close a large wound above his left eye after his head was smashed into the street as he was arrested following a minor traffic stop in Harlem Tuesday evening.  

Horrified bystanders filmed the 20-year-old being held down by one NYPD officer while another repeatedly punched him in the head, leaving him in a pool of his own blood. 

One onlooker named Monica, who declined to provide her last name, filmed the distressing incident.

Diaby and his sister, Fraton Diaby, 24, told activists they were in a car trying to park near the corner of Fifth Avenue and 130th Street in East Harlem around 6.30pm Tuesday.

Multiple officers approached the vehicle and confronted Kevin Diaby, the driver, for 'failing to signal' due to his hazard lights not being on.

After investigating, New York Police spokesperson Sophia Mason said officers discovered Kevin didn't have a license and his uninsured vehicle had a suspended registration.

Fraton, who was sitting in the front passenger seat when police stopped the pair, told Spectrum News she tried to reach in the car to grab her charger before police impounded the vehicle. Video shows her being shoved away by an officer.

Police said Diaby then reached in the car and shoved past the officer who was driving it to be impounded but witness Monica, who filmed the encounter, claims that is not true.

Diaby's sister, Fraton Diaby, 24, said police used excessive force on her brother. Officers claim the young man shoved one of them at the scene, but witnesses said the officer who beat Diaby was the aggressor

Diaby's sister, Fraton Diaby, 24, said police used excessive force on her brother. Officers claim the young man shoved one of them at the scene, but witnesses said the officer who beat Diaby was the aggressor 

'The officer was the aggressor,' she told the Daily Mail via email. 'The officers were very aggressive they were using excessive force unnecessarily.' 

Monica's video showed the officer pinning Kevin to the street before smashing his head into the concrete multiple times.

Multiple community activists, including Iesha Sekou of Street Corner Resources and Hawk Newsome of Black Lives Matter Greater New York, were called to the scene.

Newsome later confronted officers at the 32nd precinct and Harlem who told him Diaby had been taken to Harlem Hospital for treatment. 

Spectrum News reports all charges against Diaby and his sister, including resisting arrest and obstructing government administration, have been dropped.

The family's supporters say they plan to pursue legal action against NYPD

Ans this is why i dont get involve with niggers i hate niggers more than white people, one of the reason why i left the community, because of so many retarded, ubeducated and slave niggers things like that are happening

Niggers will vote for those politicians over and over, brag about it without questions, ypu brag abput being democrats what have they done for you lately other than ignore what is happening, in fact as soon as you ask those politicians about nlack issues they start to add up gays and immigrants, they never focus on blacks alone, when the last time you questions those black politicians, what exactly is their job, what role do they play on term of black issues, for all those years how come those black politicians cannot pass any bills who can stop nonsense like that, are you people that dumb?

How many more innocent black person have to be victims like that, how come it does not happen in other communities, but you porch monkeys will not question those politicians, the sad part as much as niggers can kill each other, they stand around and watch s*** like that happen and do nothing because they are so scared of thoae racist white boys and they know it, how come yoi dont find a way to fight back, i bet no other communities will stand around and allow that to happen, if you can stand around and tolerate things like that to happen now you know why white people call you niggers, and for that i will always hate niggers they are the problem to Black people, pick up a book and read no matter what you say there are differences between niggers and blacks, i would never lower my alef esteem and compare my self as a n*****, i am a black who is willing to put my life on the line, dedicate the rest of life uae every resources to male sure that cop and his whole family feel the pain i feel, i will never like white people as long as i alive this is why i live in a ovwr populated white community and still do not have a white friend, i hope to die without ever have to call a white person my friend or have to defend that they are good wh8te people
