An arrest has been made in the carjacking that took place on Ridge Road in the town of Webster earlier this week.
Andrey Ogonovskiy, 25, was charged with second-degree robbery, fourth-degree grand larceny, second-degree attempted robbery, and third-degree robbery.
Police were called to the Savers Store parking lot at the corner of Ridge and Hard roads, which is located near the Webster Police Department a little before 4 p.m. on Monday for the report of a man who forcibly stole keys from a woman.
His attempts to steal that vehicle were unsuccessful, but he stole another vehicle from a different victim in the same parking lot moments later. He punched the woman, threatened to kill her, then took her vehicle.
The stolen vehicle was located in the city of Rochester. “Ogonovskiy was identified as a suspect through the investigation and criminal complaints were prepared for his arrest,” Webster police wrote in a statement.
He was taken into custody by the Rochester Police Department Tactical Unit and turned over the WPD.
He was arraigned and held on $50,000 cash bail.
