As New York police tried to get “Occupy Wall Street” protesters to move off the street and onto the sidewalk, officers dragged a young woman through the street and arrested her.

“We noticed that cops were pulling the girl by her hair,” said a CNN iReporter, who recorded the incident.

“People starting yelling that it was police brutality. That’s when I started filming.”

A crowd of protesters shouted “shame” and booed the police officers as they dragged her into the street. Others could be heard shouting, “help her.”

Why police officers apprehended the young woman is unknown.
