Police officers rescue suspect dangling out NYC apartment window

NEW YORK — Police say two officers rescued a suspect as he dangled from a seventh-floor Manhattan apartment window after nearly lunging to his death.

Officers Isaias Alicea and Vincent Gagliostro grabbed the 200-pound man’s arm and leg as he fell, holding him until colleagues arrived to help pull him to safety.

The suspect and one officer were treated for minor injuries.

Police say officers Alicea and Gagliostro were responding to a call of child neglect at the Harlem apartment Thursday morning when they happened upon the man.

During a struggle with the suspect, police say he broke free and dashed for a window. He removed a barrier and jumped out, but the officers grabbed his arm and leg as he fell.

The man is undergoing a psychological evaluation.
