A video has popped up on Instagram that appears to show New York City police officers pummeling a man in the city's Bronx borough.

The video was uploaded Friday by @GoHardBoyzNYC and @Hocus45th, and it seems to clearly show officers punching and kneeing an unidentified man in the head.

In the background of the video, you can hear people screaming and pleading with the cops to stop beating the man.

"Why are you hitting him? That don't make no sense!" one person says in the background.

In the video, one cop can be heard saying, “If he stops fighting, I won’t hit him."

Other than that the video was filmed in the Bronx, little information is known about when the video was filmed or the exact location, according to the New York Daily News.
