EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio-- The city has fired two officers after allegations of excessive force against a robbery suspect.

BCI is now investigating the East Cleveland officers to determine if criminal charges should be filed.
The suspect, Jesse Nickerson, was taken to the hospital.
His friends and family members say the officers took him to a park and assaulted him after he was arrested.
