NEW YORK (AP) - Police say an armed robbery victim helped them catch up with a suspect who stole a car, was in it when it crashed and flipped over and then took a cab to try to get away.

The New York Police Department says the chain of events started around 2:15 p.m. Friday. The 22-year-old victim man called 911 to report the gunpoint robbery at his home - and describe the suspects, his car and his plate number.

Officers found the car overturned and empty at a nearby intersection. Firefighters there told the officers that one person in the car had run off and hopped a fence, while the other had gotten a livery cab.

Police found the cab and arrested the 21-year-old suspect on robbery and other charges.
