a man tried to strangle a policeman with a chain

The officer was pushed to the ground and the chain was pressed against his throat. The incident occurred near Bond Street and Broadway in Manhattan, reported the New York Police Department.

The suspect was arrested and will be charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and attempted strangulation. “Violence, in any form, is unacceptable. We will review this incident and bring other perpetrators to justice,” police said.

The protests in New York, which initially unfolded peacefully, ended with clashes between the police and protesters.
