Two Buffalo, New York, police officers who pushed an elderly man to the ground, causing a head injury and bleeding from his ear, have been arrested, ABC News reports.

The officers are now “facing criminal charges in connection with the graphic caught-on-video shove of a 75-year-old man during a protest,” a law enforcement source told the news outlet.

“The Thursday protest at Niagara Square had less than 20 demonstrators and several members of Buffalo Police Department’s Emergency Response Team,” officials said.

Prior to the arrest, “both officers were suspended and the Erie County District Attorney John Flynn launched an investigation,” noted ABC News.

CNN also reported that the officers have already been arraigned and will be charged with second-degree assault. The elderly man remains hospitalized but in stable condition.
