RIDGEWOOD — Three officers from the 104th Precinct used a combination of good, old-fashioned police work and some 21st-century technology to track a suspect through three boroughs.
Police said they arrested 30-year-old Alexis Torres, of 58-59 79th Ave. in Glendale in Manhattan March 14 after they tracked him from Woodside, where he allegedly got into a physical altercation with his wife and made off with the couple’s 1-year-old baby girl.
The woman told Lt. James Lombardi that her husband used an iPhone and, by using the Find My iPhone application, Sgt. Peter Cassiere was able to track the phone as Torres moved through Brooklyn and into Manhattan, where he was arrested without incident.
Officer Maritza Mendez then fed and changed the baby with food and diapers from a local CVS store. The infant was removed to Wyckoff Hospital and Torres, a city Department of Education employee, was brought back to the 104th Precinct and charged with assault, strangulation and endangering the welfare of a child, police said.
