New York Police Arrest Suspect After Shoppers Try to Stop Robbery at Yonkers Marshall's

A 25-year-old Bronx man was arrested on January 6 on suspicion of repeatedly stealing merchandise from a department store in Yonkers, New York.

The Yonkers Police Department allege Franklyn Rosario had also robbed the Marshall’s store on Central Park Avenue a few days before his arrest, when he was allegedly filmed filling a large sack with merchandise before pushing past shoppers who tried to stop the robbery.

Rosario returned to the store on January 6 and carried out another robbery before he was arrested across the street, police said. Police said it was Rosario’s 13th arrest.

Yonkers police also advised people not to intervene in shoplifting incidents for personal safety reasons. Credit: Yonkers Police Department via Storyful
