NEW YORK, NEW YORK (WBRE/WYOU) — The NYPD released body camera footage Tuesday of a special operations horse-mounted police officer chasing a theft suspect through Times Square.
Police say the suspect robbed a sunglass glass vendor Saturday evening. In the video, when confronted by the officer, the suspect takes off running down the sidewalk and into traffic.
The horse takes chase and follows the suspect, who is quickly apprehended by nearby officers.
“All of your NYPD officers are involved in crime reduction, even the four-legged ones,” the police department said in a social media post.
