The New York Police Department reported late Sunday afternoon that a person off the street entered the 28th Precinct station house in Manhattan and began attacking the officers. One officer is reported to have suffered a broken arm in the assault.

The news was first reported via Twitter just before 5PM Eastern.

The Cliffview Pilot reported that someone off the street entered the station house and attacked officers without provocation.

According to a source at the precinct, the “perp opened the station house door at the 28th Precinct, attacked a patrolman and a fight ensued.”

“No less than 5 MOS (members of service) are guarding precinct doors. Emergency services are being dispatched to all precincts citywide until further notice,” the source added.
