YONKERS, N.Y. — A Westchester County teenager is facing a long list of charges after allegedly trying to rob two men and finding out they were undercover police officers.
Yonkers police said the officers were in their unmarked car, doing overnight surveillance work, when Michael Garcia, 19, reached into the driver-side window, grabbed an officer and demanded money.
Police said the two officers got out of the car. They say the unarmed suspect punched and kicked them while trying to avoid arrest. After the fight, all three men were treated at hospitals.
Garcia is charged with attempted robbery, assault and resisting arrest.
