NYPD makes arrest in subway robbery spree

Thursday, April 14, 2011

A teenager is under arrest Thursday in connection with a string of frightening subway robberies.

Police say 17-year-old Devante Scott is in custody after robbing seven teenagers since February.

Authorities say surveillance video shows Scott at the scene of the last robbery, inside a subway station in SoHo last week.

Police say Scott chatted up his victims before threatening them with a knife or a gun.
