"Ice-Pick Bandit" Suspect Nabbed by Jersey Cops
The New York Post says police in Bergen County, New Jersey, have arrested a man whom the NYPD are calling a "person of interest" in the "Ice-Pick Bandit" case. (The so-called "bandit" has held up at least six women in elevators -- using what looks like an ice pick -- in Manhattan's Stuyvesant Town and The Bronx's Co-op City). 1010Wins identified the man as 39-year-old John Martinez, supposedly an ex-con wanted in a separate case. The NYPD is reportedly working to bring Martinez to New York City for a lineup. [SH]
