Albany pleads guilty for crime spree

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – An Albany man pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a crime spree earlier this year.

On August 8, 2016, at approximately 3:30 a.m., 21-year-old Yehezkel Harvey was accused of throwing a brick through a second-floor residence on Myrtle Avenue. Police say the brick struck an occupant inside of the home. Harvey is then accused of fighting with the resident, damaging property and causing minor injury to the resident with a golf club.

The Albany County District Attorney’s Office says the guilty plea entered Monday morning also satisfies two separate criminal matters against Harvey.

Harvey was accused of stealing two iPads at the Apple Store in the Crossgates Mall in July. The incident was captured on surveillance and led to his arrest.

In August, Harvey was accused of pointing a handgun at a person inside a residence on Mercer Street. No one was injured and Harvey was arrested shortly after the incident.

Harvey faces five years in prison and three years post-release supervision when he is sentenced on December 9. He will also be ordered to pay back $900 in restitution for damage caused during the residential burglary.
