NORTH LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating after a woman is seen being assaulted and thrown into a pool after complaining about noise at a North Lauderdale party.

Video shared on social media shows the woman entering the pool area at the Players Place apartment complex on Saturday with her two small dogs.

The woman can be seen asking partygoers to lower the noise at the party.

A group of people surround the woman, laughing and taking video with their smartphones.

A man in a red shirt is then seen picking up the woman and falling to the ground. It's not known whether the man attempted to body slam the woman, or if he slipped on the wet pavement.

After the fall, the man picks up the woman and throws her into the pool while she continued to hold the leash of her dogs.

Party attendees can be heard screaming and laughing as they quickly ran away from the area.

The Broward Sheriff's Office is currently investigating the incident and looking to speak with witnesses.

The woman in the video declined to speak, but residents at the apartment complex spoke to Local 10 and were shocked at what occurred in their community.

"First of all, I can't even believe that somebody would be allowed to act like that," said Tracy Ann Simmonds. "These young people are a little bit out of control."

It's not known what injuries, if any, the woman suffered.

"She's an elder, you need to show respect for your elders that's crazy, that's a horrible, horrible thing that happened to her," said Simmonds.
