The Cambridge Police Department said it will conduct an internal review following the controversial arrest of a black Harvard University student over the weekend.

On Friday night, police officers confronted 21-year-old Selorm Ohene. He was naked and standing on a traffic median on Massachusetts Avenue. In a video released by Cambridge Police, officers are seen tackling Ohene. At least one officer strikes him as he's being arrested. Bystanders repeatedly shout "Don't hurt him."
