According to police, officers responded to a report of an unconscious person at 39 Spruce Street in South Farmingdale at around 2:25 a.m., Sunday. As soon as the officers arrived, they were allegedly confronted by Michael Rosen, 22, who acted aggressively towards them. While officers attempted to bring Rosen to a waiting ambulance, he tackled one and punched him repeatedly in the face and body. Two additional officers tried to restrain Rosen but were punched and kicked. Eventually, Rosen was placed under arrest but the hostility didn’t end there. Rosen’s father, Robert Rosen, 52 reportedly threatened an officer while blocking him from leaving the home. He too, was placed under arrest.
Michael Rosen was transported to a local hospital and currently, his condition is unknown. Two police officers were also transported to a hospital, where one was treated for a sprained right ankle and right knee injury while the other was treated for pain to his right wrist, right elbow and abdomen. The officers were later released.
Michael Rosen was charged with two counts of Assault. His arraignment is yet to be determined. Robert Rosen was charged with Resisting Arrest and Obstructing Governmental Administration. He will appear at First District Court in Hempstead on Monday, Nov. 28.
