One of two suspects was apprehended for allegedly stealing a car at knife and gunpoint in Westchester County.
The incident took place on Thursday, Oct. 17, after the New York State Police received a report of a stolen vehicle traveling on Route 9 in Peekskill, said Trooper AJ Hicks, spokesman for the state police.
Around 4:20 p.m., the vehicle was reported to be headed southbound on Route 9 heading into the town of Cortlandt, Hicks said.
State police patrols canvassed the area and located the vehicle unoccupied in a residential complex in the Montrose section of Cortlandt, he said.
After finding the vehicle, the state police, along with the FBI, and the Yonkers Police, began a surveillance operation of the vehicle and one of the suspects was nabbed. The other reportedly remains at large.
An investigation revealed that the vehicle was stolen earlier in the day at gunpoint and knifepoint in the City of Yonkers.
