ORANGE, N.J. (AP) — Students from a New Jersey high school have marched to police headquarters after an officer was recorded on video grabbing a teen girl by the hair.
Twin sisters Nyasia (ny-EE’-sha) and Kyasia (ky-EE’-sha) Sorrells tell News 12 New Jersey they were getting pizza on Thursday across from Orange High School when Officer Hanifah Davis tried to clear the corner.
Video shows Davis talking to Kyasia Sorrells and then telling Nyasia Sorrells to back up. When Nyasia Sorrells approaches, Davis grabs her by the hair and both girls end up on the ground with Davis on top of them.
Democratic Orange Mayor Dwayne Warren says Davis has been relieved of duty pending an investigation.
A school board staff member who tried to intervene was ticketed.
A police union representing Davis wasn’t immediately available for comment.
