Police Beat Handcuffed, Emotionally Disturbed Man
Two EMT workers are confirming that they had to stop four police officers from beating an emotionally disturbed man being hauled away on a stretcher.
According to the emergency workers enraged authorities punched him in the face several times after he spat at them.
Two FDNY EMTs who had to intervene to stop four police officers beating a handcuffed patient on a stretcher have turned the cops in to authorities, the Daily News has learned.
The emotionally disturbed patient was punched multiple times in the face by the cops on July 20, according to FDNY documents obtained by The News.
The cops only stopped when the EMTs bodily intervened, the report said.
The two FDNY emergency medical technicians were called to Brooklyn’s 67th Precinct stationhouse between Rogers and Nostrand Aves. in East Flatbush around 7:30 p.m. to bring the patient to a nearby hospital.
ESU arrived to restrain the man for transport. He was combative and banging his head against the wall, reports said.
“Pt. came out of the cell in cuffs. Pt. became combative with PD and (was) put on our stretcher,” wrote one EMT in the Unusual Occurrence Report filed with FDNY brass.
“Pt. was struck in the face by an officer … pt. spit in the face of an officer, whereupon the officer punched the pt. in the face multiple times,” the report said.
When the patient spit at the cop again, more cops started beating him, the EMT said.
“Three cops began to punch the patient in the face, EMS (had) to get in the middle of it to intervene. Pt’s. wounds and injuries cleaned in the (ambulance),” the report said.
The account was backed up by the second EMT, who noted that the patient was brought out by ESU in “handcuffs and foot shackles.”
