Police have apprehended at least one of the three suspects involved in the January 17 rape and robbery at a tattoo parlor in Bed-Stuy.
Police could not confirm, but said the suspect was identified either through the cameras inside of the parlor or from the DNA rape kit. Police identified the suspect’s MacDonough Street residence and began a search and pursuit at around 10:30pm Thursday.
Police went to his home and attempted an arrest, but the suspect fled on foot. Helicopters and police dogs were brought in to assist in the pursuit during which the suspect hopped over fences and through neighbors’ back yards to escape police.
Shots rang out and the suspect was injured, including one passersby, according to reports.
The suspect was apprehended and arrested at around 11:00pm. He was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he is being treated, said police. The suspect’s identity has not been released.
Police cars are camped out in front of the house now, as the special victims unit waits for a judge to sign a search warrant, police said.
