The carjacking suspect who tried to run a stolen SUV into police on Monday was arrested and charged for a series of crimes since the incident — including murder.
Tyrell Brown, 25, was picked up by officers on Tuesday who were called to the Rosebank section of Staten Island after Brown tried to carjack yet another car, police said.
Earlier that day, police said Brown had broken into a parked and running Honda Civic in front of home on Walker Street in the Mariners Harbor neighborhood.
But the car was a stick shift, prompting Brown to flee without the car.
Investigators also linked Brown to the July 6 shooting death of New Jersey resident Kuwan Collins, 40, who was found Sunday with a gunshot wound to his head in front of a Staten Island home. He was charged with second-degree murder, second-degree robbery, criminal use of a firearm and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
Brown, who was reportedly arrested while wearing a wig to disguise himself as he tried to steal more cars, also faces a litany of charges for the crime spree that followed the alleged murder.
That first carjacking, about an hour after Collins was found dead, earned Brown a robbery charge and one for criminal possession of stolen property.
His escape after running into authorities at the Verrazano Bridge brought about charges of attempted assault, reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and leaving the scene of an accident with injury.
The final attempt to steal a car before he was finally arrested capped off the list with an attempted robbery charge.
The arrest comes after $12,000 was offered in reward for his arrest.
