Two undercover NYPD officers attempting to arrest a 14-year-old girl because they thought a child who was with her had pushed the button on a police call box got more than they bargained for.

The arrest attempt, which went down around 7pm on Thursday night in the uptown neighborhood of Washington Heights, was thwarted by other members of the community.

Witnesses reported the incident began after the seven-year-old child allegedly hit the button.
