A CAPITOL Police officer whose gas mask was ripped off by a MAGA mob screamed for help as his face bled during Wednesday’s Capitol riot. 

A video captured the harrowing moment that the young officer was crushed against a metal door as Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building to prevent Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

The unidentified officer appears trapped between a steel door and a shield that a rioter took from a cop, in the video obtained by the Daily Mail on Friday.

He wails, “Help!” as blood drips down his face. 

The cop was among other Capitol Police officers trying to prevent rioters from entering the west side of the Capitol building. 

While dozens of officers equipped with riot gear appeared to line the entrance, MAGA fans far outnumbered them and pushed the cops’ shields to advance.

Rioters chanted “heave ho” and some carried batons and what looked like canisters of mace. 

Officers used pepper spray and batons to try to stop the intruders from breaking in.

The cop bleeding in the video was just one of more than 50 officers who were injured in the insurrection.

Several cops were hospitalized.

Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher, died on Thursday night. 

Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund said in a statement on Thursday that the attack on the Capitol was unlike any he had experienced in his 30 years in law enforcement in Washington, DC.

The chief said that Capitol Police “had a robust plan established to address anticipated First Amendment activities.”

“But make no mistake—these mass riots were not First Amendment activities; they were criminal riotous behavior,” Sund said.

Five people died as a result of the insurrection, including Sicknick and Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt who was shot by a Capitol Police officer.
