Cops seek 3 in manhunt that locked down schools

Police are searching for three suspects who prompted a manhunt and forced the lockdown of four schools in Yonkers.

At around 11 a.m. Tuesday, police stopped a car on the Bronx River Parkway and five men inside the vehicle jumped out and took off on foot prompting the manhunt. Investigators say they found televisions and computers stolen from a Scarsdale home in the car.

The search prompted a lockdown at the Annunciation School, Our Lady of Fatima School, Pulaski Elementary School and School 15 in Yonkers, near the Scarsdale border. Cops were able to track down two men after a massive search that involved police dogs, helicopters and dozens of officers.Seventeen-year-old Juan Uribe and 23-year-old Francis Fernandez, both of Queens, were arrested and charged with burglary, grand larceny and possession of stolen property. Police are still on the hunt for the three other men who were in the vehicle. During the four-hour search, a county police car collided with a Scarsdale sanitation vehicle on Route 22 at Oxford Road. The officer had a hand injury and the sanitation worker suffered a broken leg and head injury. He is currently recovering at Westchester Medical Center.Related InformationSeveral suspects in custody after fleeing traffic stop
