A housewife has vowed to sue New York’s police department after two officers allegedly beat her up in a row over some dog poop – that did not even belong to her pet.
Ann Stanczyk claims she was punched in the face and breast by cops Shaun Grossweiler and Richard DeMartino when she disagreed with them, leaving her with huge black bruises.
The married 49-year-old says she was ‘scared to death’ and screamed in terror as they manhandled her into their police car and took her down the station.
The episode has left her scared to leave her home alone and weeks after it happened she still needs treatment on her knee.
Mrs Stanczyk, a Polish immigrant, has now filed a complaint with the Civilian Complaint Review Board and has vowed to sue the NYPD.
