Forty-three-year-old Carlos Alcis' family says he was literally scared to death when New York City police officers entered his home chasing a cellphone thief, the Daily News reports. The Brooklyn district attorney's office on Friday announced an investigation into the incident, which occurred Thursday.

Word of the DA's probe emerged Friday just before police arrested 16-year-old Stephon Foster, who lives in the same Brownville building.

A teenage terror with four other arrests on his rap sheet, Foster was busted after his prints were found on the phone, which cops tracked down by using the victim's Find My iPhone app.

Foster was charged with robbery and possession of stolen property.

The probe and the arrest were sparked by a series of events on Thursday.

The developments came after police sources raised doubts about the family's account that cops barged into 43-year-old Carlos Alcis' apartment and rousted him from his bed. 

The family insists the terrified father of eight collapsed into convulsions and then died of an apparent heart attack after police dragged two of his sons out of the apartment for questioning.

"My brother was asleep and they took my little nephew out," Rudy Alcis, 40, said. "When they took him, (Alcis) didn't know what was happening. He kept asking, 'What's happening? What's going on?'

"When they took my second nephew out, my brother fell on the floor. When he fell on the floor, he started shaking."

Carlos Alcis of Brooklyn died after police came into his home. His family  maintains that he was literally frightened to death when cops barged in, but a  witness and an NYPD investigation says Alcis willing let the police into his  Brownsville home.

 

The Brooklyn District Attorney has launched an investigation into the death  of a dad whose family claims he was literally scared to death by cops chasing a  cellphone thief.

Word of the DA’s probe emerged Friday just before police arrested  16-year-old Stephon Foster, who lives in the same Brownville building.

A teenage terror with four other arrests on his rap sheet, Foster was busted  after his prints were found on the phone, which cops tracked down by using the  victim’s Find My iPhone app.

Foster was charged with robbery and possession of stolen property.

The developments came after police sources raised doubts about the family’s  account that cops barged into 43-year-old Carlos Alcis’ apartment and rousted  him from his bed.

The family insists the terrified father of eight collapsed into convulsions  and then died of an apparent heart attack after police dragged two of his sons  out of the apartment for questioning.

“My brother was asleep and they took my little nephew out,” Rudy Alcis, 40,  said. “When they took him, (Alcis) didn’t know what was happening. He kept  asking, ‘What’s happening? What’s going on?’

“When they took my second nephew out, my brother fell on the floor. When he  fell on the floor, he started shaking.”

Rudy Alcis said his brother was in good health and had no history of heart  trouble.

Alcis’ widow insists “he was asleep in bed with her,” family attorney  Sanford Rubenstein said.

But when Alcis’ 16-year-old son Imanuel described how cops made him perform  mouth-to-mouth on his dad even after he told them he didn’t know how, a  distraught Anna Alcis burst into tears and had to be helped out of Rubenstein’s  office.

This is the back door of the basement  apartment that police allegedly pushed in and as a result, a man had a heart  attack. 

“Why! Why! Why!” she wailed.

The chain of events that ended with Alcis' death began at 5:30 a.m. Thursday  when a 21-year-old woman was punched in the face at Kings Highway and Rockaway  Parkway and robbed of her iPhone, police said.

A witness followed Foster to the two-story brick building where the Alcis  family lives in a basement apartment and called the cops. He said the culprit  was wearing red pants.

Contrary to what Alcis’ family claims, police sources said the dead man let  the cops in himself.

"You can put my son in the show-up," he said, according to the sources.

Alcis would have been referring to a police line-up and his sons Imanuel and  Lissage, 21, who were both at home.

NYPD internal affairs investigators found no evidence that police smashed  open the door as Alcis' kin claims, the sources said.

Tina Johnson, who lives on the first floor, said police damaged her door trying to gain entry without a warrant to check her sons.

Tina Johnson, who lives on the first  floor, said police damaged her door trying to gain entry without a warrant to  check her sons.

There was no damage to the locks and, while the doors of the building are  old and nicked, it appears to be the result of normal wear and tear, the sources  said.

Alcis’ family told a different story. Immanuel said the first inkling he got  that cops were inside was when they woke him up.

“I was sleeping and the police put a flashlight in my face,” he said. “They  asked me to step outside to ask a woman if it was me. She said it wasn’t me.  When they took my brother out, that’s when my dad fell on the floor.”

The dead Haitian immigrant's family also claims it took 30 minutes for an  ambulance to reach their Rockaway Parkway home, which is just blocks away from  Brookdale University Hospital.

Anna Alcis, wife of Carlos Alcis,  listens as her children and brothers-in-law speak about the events of early  Thursday morning, when they say police entered their East Flatbush apartment  searching for a cell phone thief but ended with the father of eight collapsed  and dead before police left.

Investigators admit the delay happened because the officers who radioed for  an ambulance apparently failed to tell the dispatcher they were no longer at the  scene of the cellphone robbery.

But they said they didn’t try to revive Alcis with a defibrillator because  they were able to detect a pulse in the dying dad.

They confirm that police asked Imanuel to perform mouth-to-mouth  resuscitation while they did the CPR — a request the sources described as "not  unusual."

Rudy Alcis said cops continued searching the apartment even as his brother  lay there unconscious with blood seeping from his mouth. And by the time the  ambulance got there, Alcis was dead.
