NEW YORK (AP) - A man who is jailed on charges of attempted rape
and posing as a doctor has filed a $1 million lawsuit claiming that
a fireman, running to the collapsed and burning World Trade Center
on Sept. 11, knocked him down and broke his arm.
Appukkutta Narayanan, 60, claims in court papers that the
rushing firefighter knocked him to the pavement at Broadway and
Canal Street around 11 a.m. the day of the terrorist attack,
shortly after the second of the twin towers fell.
Narayanan's lawyer, Anadel Canale, said the fall after the
collision with the firefighter broke one of her client's arms, but
she did not remember which one.

Narayanan allegedly attacked a woman who had gone to his
12th-floor apartment-medical office that day in response to an
advertisement for a housekeeping job. She told police that after he
grabbed her, she freed herself and fled.
After Narayanan was arrested, the woman told police she had seen
medical equipment in his apartment. Police, armed with a warrant,
said they found medical supplies - such as syringes, surgical trays
and bottles of pills - throughout the flat. They also said they
found fliers advertising various medical services.
Narayanan is due back in court on the criminal charges on Dec.
18. He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of the
