NEW YORK – A retired NYPD police officer and his wife scuffled with cops in a Manhattan stationhouse after their teenage son was stopped, frisked and handcuffed, cops said.

Merault Almonor, 49, punched a female officer in the face during the March 20 fracas in the 30th Precinct stationhouse in Harlem, cops said.

But Almonor’s lawyer said the former cop, his wife, Wilma Dore-Almonor, and their 13-year-old son, Devin, were the real victims.

“Based on the facts … the only crimes that were committed were by the cops in the 30th Precinct,” said Robert Gottlieb.

Almonor and his wife came to the precinct after learning Devin had been picked up with a group of teens acting out on W. 141st St. He was charged with resisting arrest, cops said.

Almonor, who was arrested Thursday, was awaiting arraignment on charges of assaulting a police officer and reckless endangerment.

Charges against his wife include resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing, among other charges, police said.

    I wish they would take away your retirement. You do not deserve to get one. You should have known better.

    There is no excuse for this type of action. Being upset is one thing, punching an officer in the face is another. I know it is probably not possible, but Mr. Almonor besides facing criminal prosecution, should lose his NYPD retirement. He is a disgrace to the uniform he once wore...

    Just to add a little to the story... the female officer may have permanent injuries to her face. She has some paralysis.

    Typical lawyer BS. You hit a Cop (especially in their own house) you get locked up, no exceptions, no excuses.
