An Everett man is in custody after a New Year’s attack on a Boston Police officer that was captured on camera.
Around 2 a.m. on Jan. 1, a man, later identified as 23-year-old Andrew Bowman of Everett, approached a parked cruiser near the One City Hall Plaza parking garage and shouted at the officer sitting inside, according to a police report.
“You heard about the war, right?” the suspect reportedly yelled, then began punching the officer in the face through an open driver-side window, police said.
Footage captured across the street, which BPD posted online on Saturday, shows the incident in progress, though it has no sound. It had nearly 20,000 views on YouTube by Sunday afternoon.
