Gun-Toting Man Assaults Police Officer

Story from this week's police blotter.

This blotter was compiled using information provided by the New York Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.


Police got more than they bargained for one February night when a simple arrest turned into a chase and a struggle.

At 8:20 p.m. on Feb. 6, police spotted a man, 34, standing on a rooftop landing of a Saint Edwards Street building near Myrtle Avenue without the permission to be there.

As one of the police officers began to arrest the man, he pushed the officer to the ground, causing the officer to cut his hands and injure his knee. 

The man ran away, and another police officer on the scene took off after him. After a brief chase, the man turned around and pointed a gun at the police officer. 

After a brief struggle, the man was placed under arrest, and his loaded firearm was recovered by the police. Police also found a quantity of narcotics in the man's jacket.
