A Queens teenager has been charged with assault and a string of other charges for crushing a police detective with a stolen 2018 BMW Tuesday night, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.

Jorge Alvarez, 18, of Corona, injured a Nassau County detective after he was spotted by police at a BP gas station in Rego Park in the stolen vehicle on April 21.

Police approached the car and one of the detectives attempted to get inside the vehicle from the passenger side. Alvarez then slammed the accelerator as the detective was getting in–before plowing into another car.

The Nassau cop was pinned between the two vehicles and his legs were crushed. He was taken to a nearby hospital with severe injuries.

Alvarez fled the scene but was later apprehended.

“Our police face danger every single day on the job. This veteran detective with the Nassau County Police Department was investigating a report of a stolen car, when he approached the vehicle at a gas station and the driver hit the accelerator,” said Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz in a statement.

“The defendant was attempting to evade arrest. But after fleeing the scene, he was quickly apprehended and now faces very serious charges,” Katz said.

Alvarez has been charged with assault in the first degree, assault on a peace or police officer, criminal possession of stolen property in the third degree, unauthorized use of a vehicle in the third degree and obstructing governmental administration in the second degree.

Judge Karen Gopee set bail at $25,000 bond/$10,000 cash and set his return date for May 27.

Alvarez faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

Get these criminals off the streets

I love how the media loves to portray Latinos as innocent, hard working people when the majority are like this kid…thieves and crooks in a variety of ways.

Hey now, we’re not all like that. A lot of us are hard working people who contribute to the economy and teach our kids to respect others; the actions of these teens could be due to bad parenting or just them wanting to prove they’re tough. We are also ashamed of these types of people and would like the judicial system to punish them to the fullest extent. They do not represent the upbringings that were taught to us by our elders such as treating people in a way that’s morally right. But I could be wrong and the actions of these Latino teens may be a result of the ideals taught to them by their parents.
