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.
