Heroic NYPD duo raced to get suspected bomb out of Times Square

Sgt. Hameed Armani and Officer Peter Cybulski were parked on Broadway near Times Square last night when someone tossed a suspected bomb into their vehicle. The device clicked and flashed. The brave cops drove away from the crowd, risking their lives to save the people in Times Square, report Paige Leskin and Chris Brito of PIX 11 News.

‘”I look around, saw a lot of kids, a lot of young people,” said Armani. “We both look at each other and I go, ‘We’re going to go, but I’m not going to have anyone else go with us.'”‘

When they reached a secluded area, the officers put the device on the sidewalk and called the bomb squad.

The device was found to be harmless.
