Driver Claims He Didn’t Know He Ran Over A Kid

November 16, 2017

A Queens man charged with intentionally running over a teenage prankster insists he’s just a bad driver.


In an exclusive jailhouse interview, Richard Keith claimed he had no idea that he had mowed down one of the boys who hurled eggs at his car in Long Island City on Halloween night.


“I thought I hit a trash can, which is why I was moving (his car) back and forth,” Keith, 50, said from Rikers Island. “I didn’t know there was a kid under me.”


Prosecutors and witnesses told a different story, saying that Keith knew exactly what he was doing when he crushed Christopher Miraba, 17, under the wheels of his Dodge minivan.

Two Thieves in Custody After Chase

May 04, 2017

Inwood: According to detectives, Community Oriented Police Enforcement officers, while on patrol, observed Timothy Robinson, 37, Andrew Strowder, 57, both of Far Rockaway, and another (not yet apprehended) in the rear of 2298 Johnson Rd. in a fenced off premise used for storage.


The defendants were taking round spools of copper wire valued in excess of $3,000 and loading it into a van. As the officers attempted to investigate, the defendants fled in the van at a high rate of speed, narrowly missing the officers’ vehicle.


In an effort to further evade police officers, the defendants drove through a chain link fence and row of hedges in the vicinity of 605 Rockaway Tpke., where the van came to a stop after getting stuck in the fence. No injuries were reported.
