The attorney for the New York pregnant woman who was assaulted by a cop announced there would be an independent investigation into the allegations of police brutality. DNAinfo.com reported that the Kings County DAs office announced the probe after meeting with the family and their attorney.

The two women and their lawyers met with Marc Fliedner, chief of the DA’s newly revamped Civil Rights bureau, on Tuesday, attorney Sanford Rubenstein said.

Rubenstein said the investigation would be independent from the NYPD’s ongoing investigation.

“This family wants justice,” said Rubenstein during a press conference Tuesday after the meeting. He called for the police officers to be held criminally accountable for their actions.

Doctors have been unable to determine if the incident harmed the baby.
