At around 6:30 on Saturday night, the 29-year-old detective was off duty and standing with a friend (the Post says a cousin) on a platform at the 6 station on 23rd Street station when he got into an argument with a man nearby. According to the Post, the man became angry when the cop's companion began "bothering" a panhandler and eventually punched the cop in the head before running away with two female friends. The victim is now in a medically induced coma at Bellevue, while the suspect — described as a 5'10", 200-pound black man in his early 40s — is still at large.
