U.S. & World

Three Dover police officers accused of punching restrained man during an arrest.

At the time of his arrest, 19-year-old Cyprian Luke was wanted for an aggravated assault charge. Police tell us, after a phone tip, officers tracked him down here.

Stop resisting! Those are the two words police say over and over again to Cyprian Luke as they try to take him into custody.

This arrest took place at two in the morning right alongside a store and across from police headquarters.

Police told the suspect to roll over on your stomach.

When he fails to roll over, the video shows an officer repeatedly punching Luke in the face.
