The short video, shared on Twitter, was taken at about 3:30am Sunday on the sidewalk in front of Club Amnesia, in the 3700 block of Pacific Avenue.

The video shows several Wildwood officers converging around a man being held on the ground, while one cop appears to throw repeated punches at his face.

The Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office posted a statement on Facebook Monday  saying they would investigate if the officer used unnecessary force.
