Off-Duty Firefighter Attacked By Teens After Defending Elderly Couple, Police Say
May 21, 2019 at 6:58 am

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – An off-duty firefighter was brutally attacked by a group of teens Saturday on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, police say.

Authorities say the group of three boys and three girls deliberately cut in front of an elderly couple, making it hard for the couple to share the sidewalk on East 86th Street between Second and Third avenues.



When the 38-year-old firefighter told them to cut it out, things allegedly took a violent turn.

The victim was punched, knocked down and hit repeatedly. He was taken to the hospital with a concussion and broken teeth.


Police say they’re searching for six teens between 15 and 17 years old, who they’re calling persons of interest.

May 23, 2019 at 10:50 am



NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A teen accused of beating an off-duty firefighter last weekend on the Upper East Side has been arrested.

Police said Damir Johnson, 17, was among the six teens initially allegedly to have punched 38-year-old John Mongielo last Saturday morning on East 86th Street.

An ARREST has been made re: the May 18 assault in the @NYPD19Pct. The subject, a 17-yr-old male, is in custody. The victim, an @FDNY firefighter who acted as a good samaritan, continues to recover from serious injuries. We thank him for his actions & wish him a swift recovery. pic.twitter.com/eB8lyfDJzW

The off-duty firefighter told the teens to stop harassing an elderly couple, but wound up with a concussion and broken teeth, police said.

Johnson was arrested Thursday and charged with assault. Police said at this time he is the only suspect.

Cops nab teen linked to group who assaulted off-duty firefighter
By Stephanie Pagones

Cops nabbed the teen in connection to the assault on an off-duty city firefighter on the Upper East Side police said Thursday.

Damir Johnson, 17, was arrested on Wednesday shortly before 10 p.m. after police received an anonymous CrimeStoppers tip that led them to his residence, where a family member at the home positively identified him.

The teen was one of six who attacked an off-duty firefighter on East 86th Street near Second Avenue shortly before 9:30 a.m. Saturday, after the 38-year-old stepped in to stop the group from harassing an elderly couple, police said.

They instead turned their attention to the man, with one of the kids allegedly forcing him to the ground and repeatedly punching and stomping on him — leaving the victim with broken teeth and a concussion, cops said.

Police on Tuesday released video of a group of six teens — three males and three females, all believe to be between the ages of 15 and 17 — dancing and laughing as they walk down the street.

The NYPD’s Chief of Detectives tweeted Thursday to announce the arrest, writing: “The subject, a 17-yr-old male, is in custody. The victim, an @FDNY firefighter who acted as a good samaritan, continues to recover from serious injuries. We thank him for his actions & wish him a swift recovery.”

Johnson was charged with his assault for his involvement in the incident, cops said. He has three priors from 2019, for robbery, attempted robbery and grand larceny.

Investigators are still looking for the five other teens.

Suspect in FDNY beatdown claims he was defending friend
By Stephanie Pagones, Rebecca Rosenberg and Aaron Feis
May 23, 2019 | 4:47pm



One of the six teens accused of attacking an off-duty FDNY firefighter who told them to stop harassing an elderly couple on the Upper East Side claimed Thursday that he and his pals are the real victims.

“He assaulted my friend and I had to defend my friend,” insisted Damir Johnson, 17, as he was led into Manhattan Criminal Court for his assault arraignment, wearing a white t-shirt with a black-and-gray Reebok design.

The teen — who is also named in court documents as “Diamar Johnson” — was earlier walked from the 19th Precinct station house, where he faced jeers and hard stares from about 75 uniformed FDNY members.

Johnson was allegedly among a half-dozen teens hassling an elderly couple on East 86th Street near Second Avenue on Saturday morning, authorities said.

When an off-duty smoke-eater saw what was going on, he stepped in and told Johnson and his friends — two boys and three girls, all of whom remain at large — to knock it off.

But instead, they turned their attention to the firefighter, with one teen knocking him to the ground then punching and stomping him, leaving him with a concussion and several broken teeth, cops said.

The victim declined comment to The Post via phone on Thursday.

Thanks to an anonymous CrimeStoppers tip, Johnson was nabbed at his Manhattan home on Wednesday night, marking his fourth arrest this year, cops said.

He was busted twice in January for robbery and grand larceny, then for a second robbery on May 9 — just nine days before he and his friends allegedly attacked the firefighter, police sources said.

In that incident, Johnson allegedly swiped two cookies and a donut from a Kips Bay 7-Eleven, socking the owner when he tried to stop the theft, according to court filings.

Prosecutors requested $20,000 bail in that case, but Johnson was instead granted supervised release.
