Rapper Who Stopped Sexual Assault Honored By Police Who Initially Cuffed Him

The man says the incident has changed his perception of the police. 

The Brooklyn-based MC who bloodied the face of a pervert on an NYC bus was honored yesterday by some of the same police officers who initially handcuffed him. Moise Morancy was minding his own business a month ago on a Queens bus when he saw Pablo Levano, 36, begin harassing a 15-year-old girl, grabbing her hands and touching her inner thigh. When Morancy told Levano to leave her alone, he was met with attitude, so Levano ended up meeting Morancy’s fist.

After giving the creep a bloody nose, Morancy detained him until the police could arrive. However, when they did, they cuffed Morancy after Levano said he tried to kill him. Fortunately, reason prevailed, and Sergeant Johnny J. Hines III ordered Morancy’s release, calling him a hero.

Yesterday, Morancy was honored by the 112th Precinct in Forest Hills, Queens, and presented with a Good Samaritan award. Morancy told New York’s Daily News “They contacted me a little bit after and said they wanted to honor me, and I was like whoa, that’s amazing.” Morancy, who had several negative experiences with the NYPD growing up said the entire incident changed his perception of the police. “I used to say I was sure there were some good officers out there, but I had never met one. I can’t say that anymore,” Morancy told the Daily News, adding “It feels good to have a friend in the NYPD.”
