Robbery suspect, 29, dies of a possible drug overdose at the NYPD Police Department

A man died Thursday night of a possible drug overdose while being detained at an NYPD police building in Brooklyn, cops said.

The 29-year-old robbery suspect first began “acting unchecked” at around 6:40 p.m., about 40 minutes after his arrest, in the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, authorities said. Paramedics were called but reportedly refused medical attention.

Then, around 7:30 p.m., officers found the man unconscious, called for EMS a second time, began CPR and performed “life-saving techniques.”

The man was in custody at the 72nd Precinct for a knife robbery or attempted robbery, police said.

He was taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn where he could not be rescued.

While his death appears to be drug-related for the time being, the city’s coroner’s office will make an official determination.

The investigation is ongoing, police said.

The man was found unconscious around 7:30 p.m. and was pronounced dead at hospital despite efforts to save him.
