A security guard called the NYPD to an outreach center for troubled youth in New York City borough of Brooklyn.

That's where a homeless young man was sleeping on a sofa. When the man refused to leave, he struggled with officers who then started hitting him.

The security guard told the officers the man was tresspassing, but the Rabbi who runs the center says there was a misunderstanding and the man had been staying at the center for a month.

Now New York city leaders are calling on the police department to suspend the officers. Prosecutors are now reviewing the incident.
