Police in upstate New York, United States pepper-sprayed 9-year-old, horrifying bodycam videos released on Sunday show.

Iran Press/America: Officers with the Rochester Police Department responded to a call for 'family trouble' and a possible stolen car around 3.30 pm on Friday.

Cops were told by the girl's mother, her custodial parent, that she was suicidal and wanted to harm herself and others, according to the Democrat and Chronicle.

"She indicated she wanted to kill herself and she wanted to kill her mom," Deputy Police Chief Andre Anderson said at a Sunday news conference.

Cops said the girl was taken to a local hospital to receive the services and care that she needed, after she was pepper-sprayed by the officers, and has since been released back to her family.

The incident comes after the March 2020 death of Daniel Prude sparked protests leading city officials to partially defund the police in order to launch the Person in Crisis Team, under the Office of Crisis Intervention Service.

The team, which became operational last week, did not respond to the Friday call because it involved a number of events happening at the same time that required a police response, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren said, according to the Democrat and Chronicle.

Police released two bodycam videos of the encounter on Sunday, with the first showing cops looking for her after she had run from the home.

The girl drops to the ground as officers try to put her in the back of a patrol car, the first video shows. The second video shows cops putting her into handcuffs while she lies face down in the snow.
