The New York City Police Department's Internal Affairs Bureau is investigating after an officer was caught on tape punching a teen as he was being arrested.

This cell phone video shows the moment when a plainclothes officer repeatedly punched a 16-year-old suspect as three uniformed officers arrested him.

Police say the suspect and two others were taken into custody after assaulting a person with a cane.

They say it's unclear when and where the incident took place.
