The People, etc., respondent, v. Aries Palmer, appellant.
Submitted—May 16, 2011
DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Queens County (Braun, J.), rendered November 25, 2008, convicting him of robbery in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child, upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence. The appeal brings up for review the denial, after a hearing (Demakos, J.), of those branches of the defendant's omnibus motion which were to suppress identification testimony and statements made by him to law enforcement officials.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The police had reasonable suspicion to pursue, stop, and detain the defendant based upon “the contents of a police dispatcher's radio broadcast providing a general description of the perpetrator which matched the defendants['s appearance], the close proximity of the defendant to the site of the crime, and the short passage of time between the commission of the crime and the observation of the defendant” (People v. Holland, 4 AD3d 375, 376; see People v. Hicks, 78 AD3d 1075, 1075–1076; People v. Mais, 71 AD3d 1163, 1164; People v. Hines, 46 AD3d 912, 913; People v. Green, 10 AD3d 664, 664). Accordingly, the Supreme Court properly denied those branches of the defendant's omnibus motion which were to suppress identification testimony and statements made by him to law enforcement officials.
DILLON, J.P., BELEN, SGROI and MILLER, JJ., concur.
