krystle silvera nypd assault lawsuit
Krystle Silvera (pictured right) claims officers responding to a domestic violence complaint at her house broke her son’s leg and touched her inappropriately, reports the New York Daily News.

Officers came to Silvera’s Flatbush home January 30th, looking for her ex-boyfriend who had allegedly violated an order of protection.

According to a lawsuit Krystle filed, Silvera’s mother reportedly found cops outside her door but didn’t know why they were there. Courtney Silvera (pictured), Krystle’s son, was eating breakfast at the time and reportedly went to the front to see what was happening.

Courtney reportedly then grabbed his cell phone and began recording the officers. This allegedly angered one of the police officers who attacked the 10 year old, according to Silvera’s suit.

“I heard my son screaming, ‘You can’t do that! You’re hurting me! Don’t hit me!’” Krystle said.

At the time, Krystle was reportedly upstairs preparing her younger daughter for school. Once the alleged screaming started, though, she rushed downstairs, partially dressed, and then an officer pulled her outside in to the freezing cold.

While Kystle was restrained, one of her breasts allegedly popped out of her bra, revealing a pierced nipple, the suit claims.

“The officer flicked the piercing; he flicked the ring up with his finger on my right breast,” Kyrstle said. “He said, ‘Is this what Mothers look like these days?’”

The 30-year-old said the incident humiliated her publicly.

“My neighbors saw me naked. It was degrading. I can deal with the embarrassment of what [the police] did to me in front of my neighbors, but the hardest thing is explaining to my kids that not all police are bad,” she added.

Officials charged Kyrstle with assaulting the officers. She was released two days later on $1,500 bail.

Upon returning home, she found Courtney’s leg black and blue and swollen. An X-Ray at Kings County Medical Center reportedly showed he had a fractured leg.

Still, the youth plans on becoming an NYPD detective someday.

“I told my mom being a detective would be cool,” he told the News.  “I want to be a better detective than the one who did this.”

Per an NYPD spokesman, the Internal Affairs Bureau has begun investigating the allegations from the lawsuit. Three of the responding officers received treatment for minor injuries at Maimonides Hospital.

“I’ve seen a lot of police brutality cases, but nothing as low as this, kicking a 10-year-old boy,” said Anthony Ofodile, a lawyer for the family.

Krystle seeks an undisclosed monetary compensation for alleged civil rights violations, but she later pled guilty to disorderly conduct.

Though her son’s cell phone recorded sounds and voices during the confrontation, the video image remains unclear. He was briefly handcuffed before the officers learned his age.

Krystle claims her children have been traumatized by the incident.
