Sheriff’s deputies have released the name of the man who police say tried to snatch a purse, attempted to car-jack another woman and attacked two men with a bat.
Deputies say the string of events began in Wayne County and ended at St. John Fisher College which is where deputies arrested 26-year-old Michael Mahoney of Fairport.
News10NBC is told it all started in Macedon when police say the suspect stole a woman's purse at Flaherty's restaurant. Police in Wayne County stopped chasing his car last night when he crossed the county line around 9:30 p.m. We are told soon after he crashed his car on 490 right near the St. John Fisher exit. Investigators say the suspect then tried to car-jack a campus employee and two other workers tried to stop the attack with a baseball bat but police say the suspect ended up using the bat on them. Police say Mahoney ran away but they were able to catch him and take him into custody on campus.
