WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Leroi Bouche, the suspect wanted for the recent alleged assault of a Yonkers detective in Mount Vernon, was apprehended in the Bronx on Wednesday, according to a report by News 12 Westchester.
The Westchester District Attorney's office confirm the arrest of the 27-year-old Bouche, according to the report.
Bouche allegedly injured a Yonkers investigator assigned to the District Attorney’s office in a hit-and-run on Friday morning.
The hit-and-run took place on East Lincoln Avenue and Station Place. The investigator intended to interview Bouche about a pending case when the suspect sped off, striking the investigator.
