A woman was confronted by angry community members Friday after she claimed a 9-year-old black boy touched her inappropriately in a Flatbush deli.
Klein, 53, returned to the Bodega to purchase cigarettes and when prompted by a journalist went back inside to watch the encounter on the store's flat-screen television screens.
The surveillance video from the store shows the boy walking by the woman unaware of her presence with both his hands in plain view.
Accusing the boy's mother of threatening her - in person and later in a voicemail - Klein made numerous accusations, even saying during the now-viral altercation that it was the child's mother who claimed she was a police officer despite the footage clearly showing Klein declaring "I am a cop".
"The son grabbed my ass, and she chose to yell at me", Klein says in the video, referring to the child's mother. The 9-year-old boy, who was accompanied by his mother and another child, can be seen bursting into tears as more people began asking Klein about the incident.
She also says she's gotten death threats since the incident, while community members say they hope the boy is fine.
Jason Littlejohn, who lives next door, captured the entire exchange that followed on video and said police never came. "This is something that will stick with him".

"White Woman calls police on a kid, saying he sexually assaulted her", he wrote.
Klein told the police that she knew there were security tapes and she would be "more than happy to submit the security tapes for evidence".
'She would call me up and tell me my son is smoking weed in the hallway.
"The little kid thought he was going to go to jail for something he didn't do", Littlejohn told The New York Times.
The boy and, presumably, his sister cry and wail in fear while standing next to their mother, as a crowd gathers in defense of the family.
But her name is Teresa Klein.
