Our gang over at the 84th Precinct made a good grab this afternoon on the Manhattan Bridge, when they responded to a report of an emotionally disturbed person standing on the span’s outer edge. P.O. Anthony Brooks, an 18-year veteran of the department, engaged the person, a 38-year-old male, in conversation. Shortly after seeing the officers, the man turned and began to quickly walk away from them. Officer Brooks, with the assistance of P.O. William Cooper and P.O. Daniel Sandberg, followed and managed to grab him by the waist and pull him over the fence to their side. EMS responded and transported the subject to Bellevue Hospital.
