Staten Island, NY – Accused of beating a pregnant woman in the stomach and causing her to miscarry, four NYPD officers have recently been sued for violating her constitutional rights, false arrest, and excessive force. Although the woman initially informed the cops that she was pregnant, the officers allegedly struck her before throwing her to the ground and stomping on her stomach.
According to the recently filed lawsuit, NYPD officers arrived at Emelda Fitzroy’s house at 1:45 p.m. on November 2, 2014. Although the civil complaint does not mention why the police went to her home, Fitzroy asserts that she told the officers that she was pregnant before they “forcibly grabbed” her and arrested her “without any legal justification.”
