Surveillance footage shows the moment a city corrections officer was savagely beaten by an inmate accused of murder.
The attack — which law-enforcement sources say left the officer’s nose and jaw broken — took place at the Brooklyn House of Detention.
In footage, the rookie officer, identified by sources as Jian Yu, is seen closing a gate during a routine patrol of the area seconds before 24-year-old inmate Pariis Tillery runs up the stairs shirtless and confronts him on the ninth floor.
As the showdown intensifies, two more shirtless inmates come up the stairs and the three surround the officer. Yu ordered Tillery to step back, but he did not comply.
The clip shows the inmate repeatedly punching Yu, then slamming him to the floor and kicking him.
Tillery then straddles the officer and continues punching him before walking away. Moments later, two correction officers rush up the stairs and find Yu unconscious.
