Family seeks justice for man who died in NYPD raid

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A Brooklyn family is outraged and demanding justice after their loved one dropped dead after the NYPD raided his apartment early Thursday morning.

43-year-old Carlos Alcis died from an apparent heart attack when police swarmed his apartment while searching for someone who mugged a woman. The woman said the mugger stole her cellphone at Kings Highway and Rockaway Parkway in the Brownsville section.

Relatives say police pried open Alcis apartment door because they thought his 16-year-old son Emmanuel committed the crime. Police say they were let in the apartment by Alcis.

Alcis collapsed during the raid and his family says police wouldn’t let anyone help him.

The family of Alcis, who is the father of eight, expressed their outrage during a meeting with Rev. Al Sharpton at the National Action Network Headquarters in Harlem.

“When my brother fell on the floor and my nephew Emmanuel said ‘Daddy’ they said, no, don’t approach him – everything’s going to be OK,” said Rudy Alcis.

According to the family, police asked Emmanuel to help perform mouth-to-mouth to his father and claim it took nearly 30 minutes for an ambulance to reach their, which is just blocks from Brookdale University Hospital.

The Alcis family and Sharpton are calling for a criminal investigation.

    Brooklyn's final pitch to hold the 2016 Democratic national convention was centered on New York City's robust mass transit system -- and a pledge to learn "from the mistakes" from the last time the city hosted a presidential convention. The Republicans gathered in New York in 2004 to re-nominate President George W. Bush, choosing to meet in deep-blue Manhattan less than three years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
