Surveillance tape shows California police officers punching suspect, hitting man with baton

Surveillance video from a private residence shows Southern California police officers punching a suspect and hitting him in the legs with a baton.

The Orange County Register reports Saturday (http://bit.ly/1rngr5q) that 27-year-old Edgar Vargas Arzate fled from Santa Ana officers responding to a burglary call.

Cpl. Anthony Bertagna says the June 20 incident is being investigated.

The police spokesman says officers knew of the tape that night but couldn't get a copy for several weeks.

Arzate isn't visible on screen for most of the one-minute clip.

One officer appears to punch him six times. Another officer swings a baton at his legs.

Arzate, who was hospitalized, was charged with attempted burglary, battery of a police officer, resisting arrest and tampering with a vehicle.
