Teens attempt wrong way I95 bicycle escape from Greenwich police

A Port Chester, N.Y. teen is facing charges after he allegedly attempted an Interstate 95 escape via bicycle.

Yerald Fermin, 18, was arrested July 12 and charged with third degree criminal trespass, second degree hindering prosecution and risk of injury to a minor after police had received reports of three Hispanic teens who had fled from an officer on Bryam Shore Road. According to police reports, the officer had been attempting to identify the teens when they reportedly fled the scene on bicycles.

This followed what is described as an anonymous tip to the Greenwich Police Department that three teens, who officers say matched the description of the ones on Byram Shore Road, were coming to Greenwich from Port Chester to break into cars on Steamboat Road.

Police gave chase after the teenagers and reported that they initially fled onto Interstate 95 on their bicycles, going in the opposite direction of vehicle traffic. At this point two of the boys reportedly abandoned their bicycles and got off the highway, fleeing by foot. Officers say all three of them were then found hiding at a private marina.

Two of the boys were found to be minors but Mr. Fermin was taken into custody and charged. He was released on a $200 cash bond and is due in court July 21. GPD Public Information Officer Lt. Kraig Gray said charges would be forthcoming against the minors but no specific information was immediately available.
