Police Scuffle with Rowdy Migrants at Yonkers Hotel, Captured in Newly Released Bodycam Footage

Newly released police bodycam footage has revealed a scuffle between law enforcement officers and a group of rowdy migrants at a hotel in Yonkers. The incident occurred at a local Ramada Inn, which has been accommodating asylum seekers. The footage shows a chaotic scene where officers were surrounded and verbally berated in Spanish by the unruly migrant mob.

Police were called to the hotel on Tuesday afternoon following reports of an out-of-control guest. A Ramada employee made a frantic 911 call, describing the individual as violent and disruptive towards others. Upon arrival, the officers entered the lobby and apprehended 35-year-old Arnal Kent, who was subsequently taken into custody. However, Kent resisted arrest and complained in Spanish about being mistreated.

During the arrest, a 24-year-old migrant woman named Yainilet Hernandez pushed the officers and blocked the police vehicle’s door to prevent them from placing Kent inside. After managing to secure Kent in the vehicle, the officers allowed the situation to calm down. However, a few minutes later, they approached Hernandez to detain her. She resisted arrest and engaged in a physical altercation with the officers, leading them to take her to the ground in order to handcuff her. Bystanders taunted the officers throughout the incident.

Kent has been charged with menacing, disorderly conduct, and obstructing governmental administration. He was released without bail. Hernandez, on the other hand, faces charges of second-degree assault, obstruction of governmental administration, and resisting arrest. She is currently being held at the Westchester County Jail on $500 bail.

In response to the incident, Yonkers police spokesman Detective Sgt. Frank DiDomizio stated that the police “responded to a call for service and reacted appropriately.”
