ATLANTIC CITY -- A city man arrested after a video posted on Facebook showed a woman being knocked unconscious now faces additional charges after an altercation in the county jail.

Ibn Hunter, 25, was arrested Monday morning after police saw a video of a man striking the woman in Brown's Park.

Hunter was brought to the Atlantic County Justice Facility sometime late Monday, and attacked an officer while he was being strip searched, Warden Geraldine Cohen said.

The unnamed officer was able to take down Hunter, whose mugshot shows an injury to his forehead he got when he hit the floor.

"That's how these situations are handled, you take their feet out from under them," Cohen explained.

Strip searches are conducted with just one officer in the room for privacy reasons, but a sergeant was called when the scuffle began, the warden said. All sergeants in the jail wear body cameras, so that part of the incident was caught on video.

Hunter will now be charged with assault on a law enforcement officer, Cohen said. He also is dressed in black-and-white stripes rather than the normal orange inmate uniform to indicate he is a high-security inmate.

The 45-year-old victim in the video, whose name has not been released, signed herself out of the hospital Monday, police said. She was being treated for a head injury. Her condition now is not known.

It's believed the incident happened sometime Friday. The original Facebook posting was put up after 1 p.m. Friday, on the page of a person calling himself Bdsb BroadDay.

The man behind Bdsb BroadDay is believed to also be the one behind the camera, cheering on the attack. Atlantic City police are looking for him for questioning.

The investigation is ongoing. Hunter is charged with aggravated assault and is being held on $100,000 bail.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 609-347-5766 or Crime Stoppers at 609-652-1234. Information may also be texted anonymously to tip411 (847411) beginning the text with ACPD.
