RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond Police are investigating an incident in a Facebook video that has surfaced on social media showing an unknown woman being kicked to ground by a man in Richmond.

That video was sent to CBS 6 by a concerned viewer who asked us to investigate.

We contacted Richmond Police who tell us they have been alerted to the video and they are investigating.

The video, which was posted on Facebook Tuesday, is captioned "I can’t stop looking at this b*****."

It appears to be filmed in Richmond’s Whitcomb Court and has had 36,000 views and more than 800 shares as of 9 p.m. Wednesday.

In the video you can see a woman walking around and someone telling her to "come to the camera."

As she continued to walk around, you see a man come up behind her and kick her in the back.

The woman nearly fell to the ground and had a noticeable limp after the kick.

The Facebook video has received comments from hundreds, outraged at what happened to the woman.

Richmond police said no arrests have been made, but it has been sent to the First Precinct, the area that patrols Whitcomb Court.

“Our patrol officers know many of the residents in the areas they patrol – so there is always a good chance that an officer will recognize an offender and be able to locate them,” said Richmond Police spokesman James Mercante.

Mercante said they encourage anyone with video or knowledge of a crime to send it to the Department to investigate. If you have information that could help, call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
