Carlos Alcis, 43, died of an apparent heart attack early Thursday morning after police entered his Brownsville home. Police said they knocked and that Alcis let them in; his family said officers barged in around 5 a.m. and the father of nine and others in the basement apartment were awakened during the commotion, WCBS 880′s Ginny Kosola reported.
“The police put the flashlight on my face,” said Emmanuel Alcis, Carlos Alcis’ 15-year-old son whom police initially believed was a suspect in the cellphone theft. “I look up, and I couldn’t see who was it.”
While police were inside the apartment, Carlos Alcis suffered an apparent heart attack. His family said the man had no history of heart problems.
Carlos Alcis’ brother, Rudy, said when the family awakened, police were already inside the apartment and that officers did nothing in the 30 minutes after Carlos Alcis fell to the ground. Officers said they performed CPR on Alcis, who was later pronounced dead at the scene.
“With more than 10 police officers inside of the house, my nephew here had to call 911 for my brother,” Rudy Alcis said.
