From the NYPD Daily Blotter in the Post today:

An FDNY paramedic helped cops nab a group of thugs who robbed and roughed up a cabby in the East Village yesterday, authorities said. Lt. Jim Scordus was one of several on-duty EMTs near the corner of Second Avenue and East Seventh Street just before 3:30 a.m. when they saw the four goons get in a scuffle with the 50-year-old driver.
All four fled, and Scordus took off after them in his truck. He radioed to police and kept an eye on the suspects until cops arrived. David Forest, 23, Carl Muraco, 22, Chad LaForest, 21 and Nicholas Menardy, 22, were nabbed and charged with robbery.

And a belated thanks to New York magazine for mentioning the German pride parade in the Neighborhood News section...

And, one more time...

Fuck, that cab robbery happened on my block. Unfortunate but God bless the EMT for helping apprehend those thug motherfuckers.
