NEW YORK, NY- On Wednesday March 22nd morning, a stand-off took place in Midtown Manhattan as the police attempted to arrest an FBI fugitive wanted on financial fraud charges. The incident occurred on the 31st floor of the CitySpire high-rise building where FBI agents were serving an arrest warrant.


However, things took a dramatic turn when the suspect broke part of the window and started dangling outside of it, threatening to jump. This prompted a rapid response from the police, fire, EMS, and hostage negotiators who arrived at the scene to resolve the situation peacefully.

The authorities set up an air cushion on West 56th Street and engaged in ongoing talks with the suspect to convince him to surrender peacefully. Mayor Eric Adams arrived at the scene in the afternoon for an update and praised the NYPD for their extreme patience and efforts to ensure a successful resolution.

At the time of reporting, the suspect’s name had not been released and West 56th Street was closed between 6th and 7th avenues. The suspect was holed up in an apartment that may not have been his own. The situation remained ongoing, with the police continuing their negotiations with the FBI fugitive.
