On Saturday, police say a couple from New York decided to bring the woman’s 2-year-old son along with them to a home robbery, leaving him in the getaway car.
Police say they received a disturbance call early that morning and arrived at the Town of Crawford home of a 24-year-old man to find a gray 2016 Acura MDX leaving the area. A neighbor soon informed them that the Acura was involved in the break-in. When police pulled the car over, they found 38-year-old David Morris, 21-year-old Alyssa Brown and Brown’s toddler son inside.
The victim, who has not yet been identified, is said to have suffered bruises and cuts during the incident. According to police, Morris and Brown also damaged his property and stole items from his home after forcing their way through his door. The pair was ultimately arrested for second-degree burglary, second-degree robbery, third-degree criminal mischief, fourth-degree grand larceny, misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child, third-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespass and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
They were both sent to jail to await their court dates and were assigned lofty bails in the meantime. Brown’s child is currently in the custody of the Department of Child Services.
