NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department says an officer standing guard outside Madison Square Garden before the Grammy Awards was attacked by a man who hit her in the face with a laptop.
The NYPD says Officer Magna Kamara was working security in midtown Manhattan Sunday when she was approached by a stranger, who attempted to grab her gun from its holster.
The man fled after he was unable to grab the gun, and Kamara gave chase. In the pursuit, the suspect threw a laptop at Kamara and hit her in the head.
Kamara was able to subdue the man and take him into custody.
