In a video (below) cops are trying to take 16-year-old Alonzo Cox into custody. Just before that the teen was threatened with a knife by a 14 year old female. Why the cops wanted to arrest the victim is not clear. In the beginning of the video a female cop can be seen throwing handcuffs to the ground almost immediately. Shortly after a male cop can be heard threatening to punch the teen. An eyewitness than says “Why are you hitting him?” The video also shows that Alonzo tried to protect his head.
On Thursday Alonzo told Fox Baltimore he could have cooperated more, but said he began to fear for his life.
“I was scared,” he said. “I thought I was going to get shot that’s all that was going through my mind, ‘please don’t shoot me’,” he added, “I was scared for my life.”
The assault by 2 cops from Baltimore Police unfolded across the street from Woodlawn High School, where cops were called because of a fight involving a knife. When the cops arrived, they reported witnessing a female suspect matching the suspect description walking on Woodlawn Drive, swinging a “large knife” and yelling at Alonzo who was ahead of her.
Baltimore police is investigating the assault. Ussually cops investigating cops leads to nothing.
