NYPD detective who arrested wrongly-accused man under internal investigation


“An accused murderer is still fighting for justice after he was wrongly arrested four years ago for a crime he did not commit.

Now, the detective who arrested him is the focus of an Internal Affairs investigation looking at whether crucial video evidence that exonerated the man had been withheld.

Detective Carlos Faulkner of the 44th Precinct in the Bronx claims he has no memory of Enger Javier, who he wrongly arrested and sent to Rikers Island for two years in a 2012 stabbing death of a Bronx man in a McDonald’s parking lot.”
