SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. – A Sleepy Hollow man is facing multiple charges after a violent struggle with officers who were trying to arrest him Thursday, police said.
Robert Ramos, 30, was arrested as part of a joint investigation by the Town of Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force and Sleepy Hollow police.
He was apprehended on Crescent Drive in Tarrytown around 9:30 p.m. after a brief foot chase, police said.
He fought with the officers who were trying to arrest him and had to be subdued with a taser, police said.
Ramos, a convicted felon with a lengthy criminal history, had a loaded Raven .25-caliber, semi-automatic pistol on him, police said.
The serial number on the gun had been scratched off, police said.
Three officers were injured during the struggle, police said.
Ramos has been charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon; third-degree criminal possession of a weapon (defaced firearm); second-degree assault; and resisting arrest, police said.
Police also said that more charges are likely, due to the officers finding 24 grams of “alleged” cocaine at Ramos’s residence after the arrest.
Ramos was sent to Westchester County Jail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, April 6.
