Four officers of the Port Authority Police Department didn't hesitate to engage the man accused of detonating an explosive in the New York City subway system yesterday morning, leaping on top of the suspect and removing the device before more damage could be done.

Port Authority Police Department Officer Anthony Manfredini apprehended bombing suspect Akayed Ullah, with the help of three other officers: Sean Gallagher, Jack Collins and Drew Preston, Port Authority Police Benevolent Association President Paul Nunziato told ABC News Monday evening.

"They engaged the suspect, who was on the ground, they handcuffed him, they saw wires, cellphone. They made a split-second decision to actually get on top of him and restrain him, and [Manfredini] actually removed the device off of his person before he could further detonate it," Nunziato said.

"Those four guys are heroes," Nunziato told ABC News.
