Police officers in Rochester, New York, handcuffed and pepper-sprayed a 9-year-old girl on Wednesday while responding to what a police official called a report of “family trouble” in an incident sharply criticized by city officials.

Two body camera videos of the incident released by the police department on Sunday show officers restraining the child, putting her in handcuffs and attempting to get her inside the back of a police vehicle as she repeatedly cries and calls for her father.
