Man Chased by Yorktown PD Also Jailed on Ossining Assault Warrant

Arrested after police said he used a stolen credit card to purchase clothing from TJ Maxx, Cavin Williams was also wanted by Ossining on an assault charge and by New York state on a parole violation charge.

A Peekskill man who faces several felony and misdemeanor charges in Yorktown is also due in Ossining Village Court Jan. 29 on an unrelated assault charge.

Cavin Williams, 31, stole items from TJ Maxx and led police on a chase, Yorktown police said.

After he was caught and booked, police found he was wanted in Ossining in connection with an incident in June 2012. Police there had an arrest warrant out for him on a misdemeanor assault charge. 

Williams was also wanted by New York State for parole violation, said Ossining police Lt. William Sullivan.

Yorktown police said Williams and Christine Nohai, 41, of Buchanan, fled TJ Maxx, located in the Triangle Shopping Center area, in a black pickup truck on Jan. 18 at about 1:03 p.m. They had used a stolen credit card to purchase $243.90 worth of clothing from the store. 

Yorktown police officers Kathryn McGuire and Brian Nicholson were dispatched to the scene. While on route, officer Nicholson saw the vehicle and attempted to stop it on Crompond Road.

But when the vehicle did not stop, he followed it onto Granite Springs Road and Quaker Church Road. During the police chase, Williams, who was the driver of the vehicle, violated several vehicle and traffic laws, police said. 

Then, the vehicle collided into an embankment at the intersection of Quaker Church Road and Saw Mill River Road and Williams fled the scene into the woods.

Nohai was taken into custody at the scene while police searched the area for the man. Williams was located and taken into custody on the property of the BOCES Pines Bridge campus by Detectives Brian Shanahan and Sean Lewis.

Yorktown police said the man and woman were in possession of seven stolen credit cards. In addition Williams' driver's license was suspended, police said. 

Nohai was charged with seven counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony; petty larceny and third-degree unlawfully fleeing a police officer with a motor vehicle, misdemeanors. 

Williams was charged with seven counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony; petty larceny and third-degree unlawfully fleeing a police officer with a motor vehicle, misdemeanors. He was also charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor; and nine vehicle and traffic law violations. 

The man and woman were remanded to the Westchester County Jail without bail and scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

Williams is also due to be arraigned on the outstanding Ossining warrant on Tuesday.
