An NYPD officer fractured his knee while trying to bust a shoplifter at a Target in the Bronx, cops said.
The officer responded around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday for a report of someone stealing a coffee maker and air fryer from the Target on West 225th Street in Marble Hill, authorities said.
The cop spotted the suspect leaving the store and tried to arrest him, police said. A struggle ensued, and the shoplifter shoved the officer to the ground, fracturing his knee, authorities said.
At some point, the suspect dropped the stolen items and took off into a building on Exterior Street, part of NYCHA’s Marble Hill Houses, where he bolted through the back door, cops said.
Video released by police shows him walking empty-handed through the building. Cops describe him as about 40 years old, 185 pounds, about 5-foot-9 and bald.
