In the wee hours of this morning, reader Howard W. sent us these photos, as well as an account of some major police activity, complete with a low flying helicopter, last night at 85th Street and 24th Avenue at around 11:30 p.m.
Howard says both 23rd Avenue and 24th Avenue were being blocked off to car traffic and the shirtless man in boxer shorts shown below was being taken into custody by police. He also told us that NYPD reportedly recovered a black bag from the scene.
We’ve reached out to the NYPD’s press unit and, while we have yet to receive a confirmation, word around town is that the suspect was being arrested for an alleged home invasion.
