As I walked west on Schermerhorn around 6:30pm tonight, I passed a scene nearly identical to the photo in this Brooklyn Paper story and barely gave it a second thought.
If I’d known what was going on, I’d have paid more attention.
Aiden Graham reports that a man being transported to Central Booking on Schermerhorn between Smith St. and Boerum Place escaped from arresting officers and took off on foot.
No word yet about the reason the man was arrested.
According to the crime-reporting app Citizen, the suspect is described as around 6 feet tall, with a ponytail and a neck tattoo reading “E4M.” He was last seen wearing a dark coat, along with colorful coat and black Yeezy sneakers.
Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
