According to Cherita Payne (pictured). an officer allegedly slammed her son’s head, Javier (pictured on phone), in to a plate glass window at a hookah shop after handcuffing him, reports the New York Daily News.

“He thought he was going to die,” Cherita said. “He said he felt the blood rushing out of him. He had never felt anything like that before.”

Officers arrested Javier on a Saturday evening in Belmont. They claim he assaulted a 39-year-old man who he’d asked for a cigarette and was pulling away from a sergeant when he “fell” in to the glass at the shop.

Payne was taken to Jacobi Medical Center. He sustained massive blood loss from the incident, requiring emergency surgery to remove glass shards from his lungs.

The 14-year-old has remained in the hospital’s intensive care unit since.

His 13-year-old friend, who was also arrested in the attack, corroborated the falling account with a statement; however, Cherita said her son argued otherwise, saying the officer attacked her boy after he mouthed off at him.

“He said, ‘I can talk if I want to,’ and the cop threw him through the window,” she added.

“He only weighs 89 pounds,” Payne said of her son. “I don’t think they should have used force like that.”

Famed lawyer Sanford Rubenstein has called on the Bronx D.A.’s office to investigate the involved officers, “There is no excuse whatsoever for a police officer to smash a 14-year-old boy’s head through a plate-glass window,” Rubenstein said last Wednesday.

The elder Payne also claimed her son’s feet and wrist have been shackled to his hospital bed.

An officer guarding Javier reportedly told her it was standard protocol, but the NYPD has refused to comment on the incident at press time.

Javier and his friend are facing obstructing government administration and resisting arrest charges.
