two officers with his vehicle as he fled the scene at about 3:10 p.m. on Aug. 27
According to a press release, two Village Police Officers were flagged down by a Radio Shack manager, who pointed out two suspects who were fleeing from the Mamaroneck Avenue store and heading for a nearby car. Police apprehended Ernest Saunders, 40, of the Bronx at the vehicle. Jamar Rashaud Saunders, 30, of Hamden, Conn., entered the car and fled the scene despite repeated commands by police to stop.
Officer Chris McLeod witnessed the suspect take the entrance to I-95, and pulled him over on the interstate. He was taken into custody without incident, according to police.
The suspect was found to be in possession of several pieces of electronic equipment as well as several documents believed not to belong to either subject, police said.
Jamar Rashaud Saunders is facing several charges, including attempted assault on a police officer, petty larceny and numerous vehicle and traffic violations.
Ernest Saunders is facing charges of petty larceny and possession of stolen property.
Village of Mamaroneck Police, meanwhile, are investigating a robbery that also took place just before midnight on Sunday night on Palmer Avenue and Fenimore Road.
An 18-year-old man was reportedly confronted by several males who took undisclosed items from him. He was taken to Sound Shore Medical Center for minor injuries.
Village of Mamaroneck Det. Sandra DiRuzza said she did not know if that case was related to the two in Larchmont.
