EMTs took Derek Williams, 20, to Bellevue with serious injuries to his spine and legs. Police reportedly charged him with burglary and criminal possession of stolen property.
Williams has 17 prior convictions, according to the Daily News.
The article didn't mention where this happened along Second Avenue — just that it was on "the lower East Side."
CBS New York has more details on the incident, which they place at 201 E. Second St. (Not Second Avenue per the News.)
Caught in the act, [Williams] struggled with the resident, but then broke free and tried to make a quick getaway through the window – only to fall five stories.
