Man Rams Police Car to Escape Arrest
Loss Prevention officers in the Roosevelt Field Mall’s Gap noticed a man and a woman loading several stolen items from stores into a 2003 Acura parked in the South Parking Lot. Nassau County’s Third Precinct Officers responded to the call and found the two at a bus stop near the mall.
Olga Carriazo, 28, was placed under arrest without incident. Her male counterpart did not go down so easy. He drove the Acura and tried to exit the parking lot when a Third Precinct Officer attempted to stop his getaway. The man sped up and slammed the car into the patrol vehicle. He immediately abandoned the Acura and fled on foot. The officer was treated at a local hospital and was released. As of now there is no description of the man who rammed into the officer.
An investigation found that Carriazo committed Petit Larceny after she was caught through the mall’s security videos. She was charged with two counts of Petit Larceny and will be arraigned at the First District Court in Hempstead.
Detectives request anyone with information regarding the above listed crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
