2 Suspects Arrested in Times Square Hit-and-Run

Two suspects are in custody after striking a police officer with their car in Times Square and then fleeing the scene.

Arfhy Santos, 20, and William Lopez, 24, were allegedly in a Mercedes that was doing donuts in Times Square just before midnight last Saturday.  Officer Ian Wallace attempted to stop the vehicle when he was hit and knocked to the ground.

“The operator of the vehicle intentionally struck the police officer with the vehicle while attempting to escape,” Chief of Manhattan Detectives Bill Aubry said.

The suspects got away, but were arrested on Wednesday afternoon at an apartment building in Harlem.  They are expected to be arraigned on Thursday.
