NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - A Midtown Manhattan bank robbery spree ended on the corner of 31st Street and 9th Avenue on Thursday where one of two suspected thieves crashed his green Taurus and then tried to make a run for the Lincoln Tunnel.

Maarveled said once the suspect, identified as Maverick Madore, 20, was cornered he became very aggressive. With backup from an Amtrak police officer, Maarveled managed to arrest Madore.
