Alleged carjacker arrested after chase
SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) - Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputies used stop sticks to stop the driver of a stolen vehicle in the Town of Clay on Saturday.
21-year-old Bryant Brown of 424 Seymour St. in Syracuse is charged with felony robbery and grand larceny along with a misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a weapon.
At about 2:00 p.m. Syracuse Police officers responded to a reported carjacking at 401 South Salina Street in Syracuse.
A 22-year-old man told the officers he was parking his 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 in the parking garage when he was approached by Brown who allegedly showed a knife and tried to get into the truck through the open passenger window.
The driver fled and called police. As officers arrived to the parking garage, Brown drove the stolen vehicle through the metal security gate and sped off.
At about 3:15 p.m. an Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted the truck near the intersection of Morgan Road and Route 31 in the Town of Clay. The Deputy activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to stop the vehicle, but Brown refused to stop.
Another Sheriff’s Deputy in the area deployed stop sticks which deflated the two front tires and stopped the stolen truck minutes later on Henry Clay Blvd. near Wetzel Road.
Brown was taken into custody without incident. He is being held in the Justice Center and will appear in City of Syracuse Criminal Court on Sunday.
