Video shows moment Keyon Harrold’s son is set upon by woman, falsely accused of stealing iPhone

Authorities have released part of a security camera video showing the moment a woman rushed at and tackled a young black man she had falsely accused of stealing her iPhone.

The 10-second clip shows the woman tackling Keyon Harrold Junior, 14, and encircling her arms around him last Saturday in the lobby of Arlo Soho, an upscale boutique hotel in New York.

Kevin and his father, the jazz musician Keyon Harrold, were guests, the hotel said.

The woman accused the teenager of stealing a phone she had actually left behind in an Uber, authorities said.

The New York City Police Department said the teen’s father “sustained scratches to his hand.”

No other injuries were reported.
