Young Parkchester condo residents claim security roughed them up

A group of young Parkchester South Condo residents claim a night in the park turned violent last week.

The young men say they were hanging out around 8 p.m., playing with some water and being a bit rowdy. They say they were not hurting anyone but that didn't stop Parkchester South Condo security officers from using excessive force to quiet them down. The group also says it has pictures of the injuries sustained.

But security officers tell a different story, saying that they had received complaints about the disruptive group. The officers claim the young men started the violence and that they didn't use excessive force.
