Posted: Updated:

An altercation between a woman and a police officer at the Philadelphia Puerto Rican Day Parade is drawing attention after video of the incident was posted online.

Video uploaded to YouTube on Sept. 30 by a user named Gisela Valentin shows crowds gathered in the streets while officers patrol the area.

At one point in the video, several people - including a woman carrying a flag - appear to toss water from bottles in the direction of a group of police officers who were handcuffing a man against a car.

One of the officers, appearing to have been struck by the water, approached the woman and punched her once in the face. The woman fell to the ground, was handcuffed, and was led away.

The identity of the woman is unknown at this time.

It is unknown if she was arrested or if charges have been filed against her.
