Two EMS workers were robbed at gunpoint Saturday morning responding to a report of a person experiencing seizures in Brooklyn, law enforcement officials said.
The two men exited the elevator on the sixth floor of a NYCHA building in Brooklyn when an armed man appeared and threatened the pair, demanding they hand over their equipment, police said.
Fire officials say it's the second incident of a bogus 911 call luring EMS workers to a NYCHA building.
"It's despicable that anyone would use 911 for a fake medical call, threaten the lives of EMTs, and steal the tools they use to save lives," Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said in a statement.
Police said the suspect got away with two EMT radios, a tech bag and medical equipment. Neither of the EMS workers was physically injured during the theft.
The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. Saturday on Frost Street in East Williamsburg.
Officials within the FDNY and NYPD are continuing to investigate the incident.
