Boston Cop Punched in Unprovoked Attack Caught on Tape

A Boston police officer was assaulted in the early morning hours of New Years Day in an unprovoked attack caught on tape.

On the video it appears as though the officer is seated in his patrol vehicle when suspect Andrew Bowman, 23, walks up to the driver side window and begins punching the officer multiple times.

Before punching the officer, Bowman reportedly stated, “You heard about the war, right?”

Bowman fled on foot but was soon apprehended by police. After being taken into custody it was reported that he stated, “You are all doomed, and you're going to die. They told me to do this.”

The officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to recover.
