A 16-year-old Bronx teen is due in Yorktown Town Court on Tuesday, Dec. 11 on bail jumping charges, Yorktown police said.
The teen, whose name police did not release, had failed to appear in court for a scheduled court appearance on July 10 in reference to a past arrest for fourth-degree criminal mischief, police said.
As a result, police issued a bench warrant for his arrest. On Dec. 1, Yorktown police officer Donald Peters arrested the teen at the Bronx Criminal Court, where he was being held by the NYPD on an unrelated charge.
He was charged with third-degree bail jumping, a misdemeanor.
The teen was remanded to the Westchester County jail on $5,000 bail. He was scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 11.
