But Wednesday, Clark said the man, 52, was instead suffering a seizure when he placed his hands on the female EMT.
"After an intensive investigation, we have dismissed and will not charge forcible touching, sex abuse or felony assault on a police officer, firefighter or EMS professional, against [the man].".
According to Clark's office, a passerby stopped to assist the man and waved over first responders who were across the street on Westchester Avenue.
The EMT moved his hand away without any assistance while covered in protective gear from head to toe.
But FDNY EMS Local 2507 President Oren Barzilay said DA Clark was out of line and irresponsible.
Not only is this EMT a victim of sexual abuse, she is now a victim of the District Attorney’s office.".
The fire started on the first floor and extended to the upper floor and adjoining stores, according to FDNY. »
