ORLANDO, Fla. — A man this week used a brick to attack a group of Orlando police officers. The incident was captured on video because the suspect had propped up his cellphone to live-stream the assault, police said.

The video shared by Orlando PD shows a man crouching behind a police car with something in his hand. The man then strides over to a group of officers and starts hitting them.

According to CBS 12, at least two officers were injured, one of them more seriously than the other. 

Police said it took four officers to get the man under control, according to the report. 

The suspect was not immediately identified.
