NYC Parks Worker Cuffs 14-Year-Old Girl Selling Fruit with Her Family While People Try to Pull Her Away in A Crazy Video!

A disturbing video has surfaced depicting a chaotic scene in Lower Manhattan, where an NYC Parks employee is seen handcuffing a 14-year-old girl who was allegedly selling fruit from an unlicensed cart with her family in Battery Park.

The video, captured on Sunday afternoon and widely shared, captures the moment when the park employee apprehends the teenage girl as outraged bystanders protest and attempt to intervene. Shouts of “Let her go!” and demands for a female worker echo in the background as some bystanders physically intervene to prevent the girl’s arrest.

According to eyewitness Marc Rebillet, park employees initially attempted to detain the girl and her family for vending without a license. However, the situation quickly escalated as the girl resisted, and bystanders rallied to her defense, leading to a struggle between the park employee and the crowd.

In a follow-up post, Rebillet recounted witnessing park officers attempting to discard the unlicensed fruit cart, further fueling public outrage. The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation asserted that their Parks Enforcement Patrol (PEP) prioritizes education to ensure compliance with regulations but resorts to enforcement actions when necessary.

The incident has sparked an investigation by the department, while the NYPD has stated its involvement in assisting parks department employees who faced assault from bystanders. The 32-year-old mother accompanying the girl was issued a desk appearance ticket, while a juvenile report was filed for the 14-year-old.
