Last month, Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly cut the ribbon on Staten Island's first new police precinct since the 1960s. Unfortunately, the gleaming 121st Precinct got an unwelcome gift from a robbery suspect this weekend.
The Staten Island Advance reports, "A robbery suspect is accused of urinating on the floor five times while police were trying to process his arrest Sunday afternoon at the 121st Precinct in Graniteville. He then stripped off all his clothes and tried to defecate, police allege."
Angel Serate, 35, was in the precinct after being accused of punching a woman and stealing her coat. He faces robbery, grand larceny, petit larceny and assault charges, as well as resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, criminal mischief and harassment charges. He is being held on $10,000 bail and was also given a psych exam.
The $65.5 million station opened to the public in July; it was designed by "starchitect" Rafael Vinoly and was not intended to look like a toilet.
