A man who allegedly assaulted an on-duty postal worker inside a Bronx apartment building Saturday afternoon died after going into cardiac arrest while in custody, police said.
Officers caught the 30-year-old man inside the building on Grand Concourse north of I-95 around 2 p.m. on Saturday “without incident,” according to the NYPD. Paramedics later arrived at the scene and evaluated the subject, who went into cardiac arrest during the examination.
He was transported to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.
The city Office of Chief Medical Examiner will determine the cause of his death.
