In an extremely graphic video uploaded to Facebook on Wednesday afternoon, police officers in Sylmar, California, are seen assaulting and treating a 20-year-old victim of a stabbing, his frightened 14-year-old brother, and the 20-year-old mother of his child, like criminals.
The victim and his family say Officer Escalera of the Mission Hills PD should be held accountable for his actions.
The incident took place on Friday around 10:30 pm. The police had been called to help Charles Wesson, who had just been stabbed nine times. Details regarding the stabbing are unclear at this time. What we do know is that the assailant is known to the victim and detectives are looking for him.
