A New York City police officer has been suspended after being caught on camera participating in a brutal gang-style beating which led to a stabbing in Manhattan, while he was off-duty.

The suspension of officer Ronnie Velez, of the Critical Response Command, wasn’t for violence, however — it was for failing to identify himself to responding officers.

The incident unfolded on Sunday evening as Elliot Ambert, 30, and his friend Ray Cordero left a restaurant. Ambert ended up in a verbal exchange with one of Velez’s friends outside, but the two were quickly separated by security.

As Ambert and Cordero left the scene, they claim that someone came up and attacked them. Codero told the New York Daily News that he and Velez began fighting after the off-duty cop punched him in the head.

Velez is seen in the video wearing blue shorts and a black T-shirt.

Seconds later, Ambert was dragged away and violently beaten by two of Velez’s friends. Codero was restrained by Velez and another man, who he claims flashed a police badge at him. Codero said that he later learned that the man was the son of a police sergeant. No one involved was charged with impersonating an officer.

Cordero says that Velez never identified himself as a police officer, and that the former only learned of the latter’s employment later, from Internal Affairs investigators.

“He never identified himself as a police officer to me,” Cordero told the New York Daily News. “I don’t understand how you can be an officer of the law and still let that happen.”

At some point, one of Velez’s friends, Reid Koran, 34, was stabbed in the upper torso. He was not seriously injured.

The beating was so severe that Ambert’s face was fractured in three places, including his eye socket, and he has bleeding on his brain.

Three of Velez’s friends who were involved in the scuffle have been charged with felony assault on Ambert: Koran, Jeremy Gonzalez, 27, and Michael Batista, 21.

Kamar Forester, 28, is also charged with felony assault for allegedly stabbing Koran.

It remains unclear whether either of the officers involved will face charges.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
