NYC carjacking suspects crash into bus full of kids while fleeing police
Two suspects in New York were arrested this week after a Jeep they stole slammed into a school bus full of children at knifepoint while police were chasing them.
Rochester, NY police say two suspects stole a red Jeep at knifepoint from a 51-year-old woman before they were spotted by cops trying to stop the traffic, Fox 5 New York reported this week.
During the stop, the police ordered the suspects to get out of the car, but instead the driver shifted into reverse gear, crashed into one of the police cars and drove away.
Passerby Raymond Gonzalez heard the sirens and pulled out his phone in time to record the Jeep going the wrong way down the street before crashing into a school bus carrying 17 children.
The two suspects then jumped out of the car and fled on foot.
The video shows officers chasing one of the suspects and yelling at him to “lay on the ground” before eventually detaining him.
“Fortunately, the driver and all students were not injured in the crash,” the Rochester Police Department said in a statement. “The City School District has been informed of the accident and has taken steps to bring every student home.”
The suspects were identified as Malik McCullough, 20, and Adeosun Hughes, 23, and both were charged with involvement in the incident.
McCullough was charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree assault, and third- and fourth-degree theft, while Hughes was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
