Police: Man pulls out gun in effort to get woman inside of his carPosted: Updated:
Police say they were able to quickly catch the man who pulled a gun on a woman in Mount Kisco in an effort to get her inside of his car.
Kyle Gregg, of Cortlandt, was arraigned Tuesday morning in Mount Kisco Town Court.
The 23-year-old is facing a slew of charges, including attempted kidnapping and gun possession.
Westchester County police say that a woman walking home alone from work just after 12 a.m. Sunday was approached by Gregg in a gray car. They say he yelled at her to get in, but she refused and kept walking. Police say Gregg also came back a second time.
"This time the man in the car, the male, displayed a handgun and demanded she get in the car," says Westchester County Police Chief John Hodges.
Police say that the 50-year-old woman was able to give them a description of the car, which is now impounded.
Authorities say the car was a rental, with an out-of-state license plate from Maine. They were able to track Gregg down Monday near the Putnam County border. Officials also say that the gun was located on the suspect in the vehicle.
Police believe Gregg did not know the woman.
He’s now at the Westchester County Jail as investigators work to see if a serial number from the gun is connected to any other crimes.
