A police officer who the New York City Police Department says was assaulted by a man in Manhattan is now out of the hospital.

Detectives say the incident happened around 1:30 a.m. Sunday at the DeWitt Clinton Houses in East Harlem as housing officers tried to make some kind of stop.

The female officer was left with broken teeth and a cut on her face.

She was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and later released.

Police Commissioner William Bratton was at the scene earlier Sunday.

Police are looking for a man who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with red writing and gray pants.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
