Queens Teenager Faces 25 Years in Jail for Plowing Into Cop With Stolen Car


April 24, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

A Queens teenager has been charged with assault and a string of other charges for crushing a police detective with a stolen BMW Tuesday night, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.

Jorge Alvarez, 18, of Corona, injured a Nassau County detective after he was spotted by police at at Rego Park gas station in the stolen vehicle on April 21.

Police approached the car and one of the detectives attempted to get inside the vehicle from the passenger side. Alvarez then slammed the accelerator as the detective was getting in–before plowing into another car.

The Nassau cop was pinned between the two vehicles and his legs were crushed. He was taken to a nearby hospital with severe injuries.

Alvarez fled the scene but was later apprehended.

“Our police face danger every single day on the job. This veteran detective with the Nassau County Police Department was investigating a report of a stolen car, when he approached the vehicle at a gas station and the driver hit the accelerator,” said Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz in a statement.

“The defendant was attempting to evade arrest. But after fleeing the scene, he was quickly apprehended and now faces very serious charges,” Katz said.

Alvarez has been charged with assault in the first degree, assault on a peace or police officer, criminal possession of stolen property in the third degree, unauthorized use of a vehicle in the third degree and obstructing governmental administration in the second degree.

Judge Karen Gopee set bail at $25,000 bond/$10,000 cash and set his return date for May 27.

Alvarez faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

David-I did thanks. I guess to me FL has more options in terms of more affordable, safer, quieter, less polluted, cleaner, less dense cities/counties compared to NY. Easier to find communities and areas far from high crime neighborhoods. Also, Florida has great warm weather which might help the virus infection rate. I also love to swim. In NY, you would have to move way up state for cheaper living and less dense areas.


Actually, murder rates in NYC are down, way down. Please move to Florida ASAP, Sara. That’s where you belong.


Murder rates are up in NYC. With health experts predicting a second wave of coronavirus in the fall i am moving out of NYC for a more affordable and less dense area in the summer. The state of FL which has mild winters is a better option for me. Luckily i have friends that live there and can help me make the move. Looking forward to leaving this dirty virus infected city.

Florida's violent crime rate is higher than New York's

Oops, probably should have thought that one through
