NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a man suspected of stealing tires off a car in Brooklyn was shot by an officer but escaped.

A suspected accomplice was arrested on charges including grand larceny and auto stripping.

Police say a plainclothes sergeant spotted 25-year-old Arthur Whaley and 26-year-old Corey Prescod removing the tires from a parked car in Flatbush early Friday.

Police say Whaley was shot in the arm after he menaced the sergeant with a knife and ignored orders to drop it.

Police say Whaley fled and was still being sought Saturday.

Prescod was arrested.

No information was available on whether the two men had attorneys who could comment on the charges.
