NYPD police officers were up in arms Sunday night, after learning that a Brooklyn man — Kurdel Emmanuel — was released by a judge on Sunday, one day after he tried to wrestle a gun from a female officer’s holster in Brooklyn’s 83rd Precinct.

The female cop was able to overtake the man and arrest him.

The incident happened three days after another female officer, Miosotis Familia of the 46th Precinct in the Bronx, was assassinated as she sat in a Mobile Command Unit on Morris Avenue and East 183rd Street.  The shooter, Alexander Bonds,  had ranted on social media that he wanted to go after police officers.

A poster was put out Sunday by the 40th Precinct in the Bronx, issuing an Officer Safety Alert for 29-year-old Kurdel Emmanuel, stating “Have Arrested.”  Police in Brooklyn had charged Emmanuel with robbery and assault in the 2nd degree. He had allegedly attempted to grab the Brooklyn officer’s gun in the waiting area of the 83rd Precinct on Saturday.  Emmanuel had gone to the precinct to ask about the status of a friend who got arrested.
