Suspect Punches Cop in Face

When police tried to arrest a male suspect for an undisclosed crime this week, the suspect responded by assaulting one of the officers.

NYPD officials say it happened on Tuesday, June 25 at about 12:50 a.m. on 60th and Second Avenue.

When two on-duty police officers attempted to apprehend the individual, the “wanted individual then assaulted [one of] the officer[s] by punching him in the face multiple times causing swelling and pain,” according to the report.

The officer also suffered a sprained shoulder and was transported by EMS to New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in stable condition.

The suspect ran off in an unknown direction.

Police describe the suspect as “a male with a dark complexion, approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall and a slim build. He was last seen wearing an army fatigue-colored hooded sweatshirt, an army fatigue baseball cap, and blue gloves.”

We have asked the NYPD what they were initially arresting him for. We’ll provide an update if they respond.
