Welcome to NYC!
Even when our detectives investigate crimes, they are attacked by emboldened criminals, who have quickly realized that there are no consequences for lawbreakers in our city.

Arrested – Charges
A 25-year-old man was arrested for assaulting a New York police officer in broad daylight. Akeele Morgan, from the Bronx, was arrested on 39th Avenue, near Prince Street in Flushing, Queens, on Monday. He was seen hitting an anonymous detective over the head with a plastic stick, before fleeing. In response to the video, many users on social media have claimed that it is false, criticizing what they believe to be a “staged” scene.
It is not clear for now why Morgan attacked the officer. Morgan has now been charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Morgan attacked the detective around 11:50 a.m. when the officer was investigating another crime.
The Detective Endowment Association (DEA) first uploaded a video of the assault to Twitter. The association tweeted: “Welcome to New York! Even when our detectives investigate crimes, they are attacked by emboldened criminals, who have quickly realized that there are no consequences for lawbreakers in our city. The DEA is calling for this violence to be fully prosecuted as we seek to file civil charges. ”
As the pictures show, the detective was in front of a broken window when Morgan sneaks up behind him and hits him on the head. He then flees and is chased by two other uniformed officers. The footage ends with a close-up of the officer, who does not appear to be seriously injured. According to the NY Daily News, the detective was taken to “New York Presbyterian-Queens Hospital with minor injuries.”
Morgan is currently awaiting trial in Queen Criminal Court. DEA President Paul DiGiacomo issued a statement shortly after the incident, saying: “If anyone is wondering why this happened, they can ask their elected officials that they have created a city with no consequences for crime.” The association is likely to file a civil action against Morgan, DiGiacomo added.
