Jihaad Curry was arrested on Sunday for allegedly attacking two police officers in Harlem, after asking questions about jail.
According to the New York Daily News, police state that the 27-year-old Bronx resident walked directly into the 28th Precincthouse at 5:20 p.m. on Sunday night.
Shortly after he walked inside of the building, Jihaad Curry reportedly asked about receiving food in jail.
“If I go to jail tonight, would I get something to eat?”
The New York Daily News reports that when officers apparently did not answer Curry’s question quickly enough for him, he decided to become a little more aggressive and direct with his follow-up question.
“If I punch you in the face, how long would I go to jail?”
After Jihaad Curry asked his second question, two police officers tried to escort him out of the building. However, that failed attempt led to a scuffle between Curry and both officers. According to the statement given by police, both cops were knocked to the ground during the scuffle.
According to Daily News, no connection has been made between this particular incident involving Jihaad Curry and the recent Brooklyn shooting that took the lives of two officers the same weekend.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley gunned down two officers — Wenjian Liu (32) and Rafael Ramos (40) — in cold blood on Saturday.
Shortly before killing the two officers as they sat in their cruiser outside of the Tompkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Ismaaiyl Brinsley offered an unsolicited heads-up to two nearby strangers.
Further reports confirm that Brinsley also promoted his own Instagram page by asking them to follow him. He even went as far as telling the two bystanders to watch what he was going to do before he approached the cruiser.
Jihaad Curry was charged with trespassing, harassment, and assaulting a police officer. Both of the police officers involved in the scuffle suffered minor hand injuries, and received medical assistance and treatment at St. Luke’s Hospital.
