EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIANS, WHO CHASED AND CAUGHT THIEF ON FLATBUSH AVENUE SET TO RECEIVE HONORS AT 88TH POLICE PRECINCT COMMUNITY COUNCIL MEETING ON 11/16
FDNY paramedics Rheinhold Danglade and Delano Williams, located in Fort Greene, helped a young woman involved in a robbery attack last month.
The incident began around 8:40 am, on Oct. 18 when a thief snatched 26-year-old Evelina Losik’s cell phone near the entrance of the DeKalb Avenue subway station. Ms. Losik took off running after the suspect. Concerned for Losik’s safety, paramedics Delano Williams and Rheinhold Danglade turned on their siren and began pursuit of the thief. The EMTs then jumped out of their ambulance, and began to chase the suspect, who quickly threw the phone on the ground and surrendered. The heroes restrained the thief until arrival of the NYPD, as well as looked after the health of Ms. Losik.
