As a friend and I were walking to lunch, we heard a man calling for help. He was on the sidewalk face down, with a bike cop kneeling on his back and holding his head down with one hand. The man had something over his head that made it hard to see him well. The policeman looked calm and wasn't talking to the man, just talking casually to his partner who was standing a few feet away on the sidewalk. The man was asking everyone who walked by to take his picture, saying they had assaulted him.
We watched for about five minutes and the situation remained very calm except for the man on the ground asking for help. A police car pulled up and the bike cop and a cop from the car pulled the man to his feet and started moving him towards the car. Again, everything was calm and we began to walk by on the other side of the car. As we walked by, the man called to us and when I turned to look at him I saw he had a mesh bag over his head with a surgical mask built in over his mouth. There was a fair amount of blood inside the bag. I took his picture and the police seemed to hover for a minute so I could do it, then they put him in the car. He was calling a phone number to us, but we didn't catch it.
Does anyone know this man or how to get this picture to him? Frankly, I never saw the police be anything but calm the whole time I was there, but I don't know what happened before I got there. I figured it can't hurt for the guy to have the picture. Thoughts?
