NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man has been arrested and charged with serving as the getaway driver for a pair of alleged Brooklyn robbers, despite the fact that he has no legs.
Police confirmed to 1010 WINS Saturday that Danny “Charles” Marcus has been arrested in connection with the robbery that happened on Friday in Brooklyn.
Marcus, 40, was allegedly waiting in a white van as two other men allegedly held a gun to the chest of a 42-year-old man and robbed him of his MetroCard, keys and $40, according to a New York Post report. The robbery happened at 2nd Street and Seventh Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, the newspaper reported.
Marcus’ legs are severed at the knees, and he drives with a special set of hand controls on the steering wheel since he cannot use the brake and gas pedal, the newspaper reported.
The van was pulled over near Flatbush and Atlantic avenues, the newspaper reported. Marcus was arrested, along with two robbery suspects – Raheem Roberts, 21, and Darnell Cade, 35, the paper reported.
Marcus was charged with robbery, criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal possession of stolen property, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported.
