An armed criminal was nabbed by cops after going to the hospital for injuries he sustained in a motorcycle crash — that happened during an earlier botched robbery attempt, police said Friday.
Cops said 22-year-old suspect Junior Rosario and three other men started following a 25-year-old man riding his motorcycle around 4 p.m. Wednesday on St. Ann’s Avenue in The Bronx.
While the victim was stopped at a red light, the four men on their own motorcycles pulled up alongside him, flashed firearms and asked “Do you really wanna die for your bike?” police said.
The victim took off on his bike away from the gunmen, cops said.
As the four chased their target, Rosario ran a red light and smashed into a car at Brown Place and Bruckner Boulevard in Mott Haven, police said. The crash allowed the 25-year-old victim to escape.
About 90 minutes later, Rosario checked into Lincoln Hospital for head injuries and cuts to his arm, police said.
Cops said they connected Rosario to The Bronx incident by 8 p.m. and charged him with a series of attempted-robbery and firearms raps, court records show.
He is expected to be arraigned Friday, according to court docs.
