"We're gonna slip into his place. Look for any evidence that ties him to the Bulletin attack or to Fisk. If we find any, we leave it where it is. And we set off his fire alarm on our way out."
"The fire department arrives, and you circumvent a search warrant."
"But if we don't find anything, the guy goes on with his life."
Ray Nadeem and Daredevil[src]

The Infiltration into Benjamin Poindexter's Apartment was a mission carried out by Daredevil and Ray Nadeem aimed at finding evidence linking Benjamin Poindexter to the attack on the New York Bulletin.

Background

"Now, I heard you confront that psycho at the Bulletin. I heard you try to stop him, and he almost killed you, too. So let me ask you this, Agent Nadeem. Who do you think is the danger here? Me or him?"
Daredevil to Ray Nadeem[src]

Searching for the man who attacked the New York Bulletin Building, Daredevil found Melvin Potter who made the Daredevil's Suit for him. Potter insisted that he did not want to help Wilson Fisk and even burned his old workshop but Fisk forced him, threatening Betsy Beatty. Potter also said that he did not know the name of fake Daredevil but informed Murdock about his new workshop.

Inside the workshop, Potter attempted to apprehend Murdock with the suit in order to frame him. After the brief skirmish, Murdock convinced Potter to tell him what he knows, insisting that Fisk will kill him and Beatty anyway, and Potter stopped resisting. Before Potter was arrested, he informed Murdock that the man who attacked Bulletin is an FBI agent.[3]

Daredevil and Ray Nadeem are planning to find evidence

Murdock found Ray Nadeem in his house where he said that he was not responsible for an attack on the Bulletin and he needs to check his colleagues. Skeptical, Nadeem decided to check the personnel files of his fellow agents and realized that real culprit is Benjamin Poindexter. Nadeem convinced Murdock that he cannot attack him and they need evidence. Nadeem planned to sneak into his apartment and find any evidence that ties him to the attack or to Fisk.

Asking Andrea Morales for help, Nadeem called Poindexter to the New York City FBI Office where he presented Morales as his lawyer. Morales agreed to sue the FBI for wrongful suspension on his behalf, much to Poindexter's surprise. Poindexter stayed with Morales in the headquarters while Nadeem went to his apartment.[4]

While Benjamin Poindexter was distracted by Andrea Morales, Daredevil sneak into his apartment and opened the door for Ray Nadeem. Nadeem noted that they will probably find only circumstantial evidence, noting that Poindexter is too solid. Searching the apartment, Murdock managed to catch a scent of the Daredevil's Suit and found Poindexter's vault in the closet. Murdock's enhanced hearing allowed him to open it where they did not find a suit but Murdock took a tape recording of Poindexter's sessions with Eileen Mercer.

Counting remained bullets in Poindexter's gun, Murdock tricked him with the reflection in a mirror and while Poindexter reloaded his gun, he ordered Nadeem to run.

Poindexter saw Nadeem through his score and went to chase him only be barred by Murdock.

Poindexter followed Murdock to the rooftop before he was stopped by the New York City Police Department. While Murdock and Nadeem escaped the scene, Poindexter explained to the NYPD that nothing wrong happened.[4]

Aftermath

"And as crazy as it sounds, I think Poindexter may have perpetrated the attack at the Bulletin."
"What the hell are you talking about? Why would you think that?"
"Because while I was pursuing those suspicions yesterday, Dex shot me."
Ray Nadeem and Winn[src]

Still wounded, Ray Nadeem arranged meeting with Winn and Tammy Hattley in her house. On the record, Nadeem told about Wilson Fisk's schemes and Benjamin Poindexter who was responsible for an Attack on the New York Bulletin Building. Before Winn could decide anything about their situation, Hattley killed him with Nadeem's gun, making it look like that he was killed by Nadeem. They then were visited by Felix Manning who handed gun with Nadeem's fingerprints and the recording to silence him and forced him to work for Fisk.[5]
