FRANKFORT- On Friday afternoon a heavy police presence was seen along South Frankfort Street, in the Village of Frankfort. According to neighbors, there were roughly 10 local and state police cars between 1st and 2nd Avenue. According to witnesses, this all came about after a police officer was shoved and then supposedly pepper sprayed.
At 10:00 A.M. Saturday we went to the Village of Frankfort where we checked in with the police department, local residents, and neighbors.
Unfortunately we were unable to talk to the police chief, but local residents and neighbors chimed in on what they saw.
Witnesses said, they heard an altercation happen outside a home on South Frankfort Street just down the road from the Stewart’s Shops. They then saw an officer get shoved and then appeared to call for backup.
A local resident said, “it seemed like 2 minutes and then there were ten or so police cars.”
As of tonight, we have reached out to both Frankfort and State police to receive more information on this story.
We would like to remind you that all information is what witnesses are saying. We have not confirmed any information yet with local or state officials.
We will give you more information on this story as it develops.
