Fleeing Felon Collared In Rockaway
The action started at South Road and Sutphin Boulevard in the 103 Precinct when a teenager identified as Javon Cook was arrested and handcuffed by police officers, only to see him escape.
A Level 1 Mobilization was called, bringing cops from all over southern Queens to the scene.
Meanwhile, police say, Cook managed to get to his mother in Far Rockaway at about 5:03 p.m. on April 18.
His mother, fearing for his safety with police looking for him, called detectives at the 103 Precinct and told them that she was with her son at Mott Avenue and McBride Street.
Local police from the 101 Precinct in Far Rockaway were informed by central dispatch and the precinct’s commanding officer, Deputy Inspector Michael Lipetri, who was right around the corner, responded and helped rearrest the teen.
He was transported to the local precinct house, where he was collected by detectives from the 103 Squad and transported to Queens Central Booking.
It was unclear at press time what he was first arrested for.
