A 14-year-old boy wanted in the stabbing death of 18-year-old college student Tessa Majors was detained early Thursday, Dec. 26.
The Barnard College student was stabbed during an attempted robbery in Morningside Park on Manhattan's upper west side on Dec. 11.
The suspect was captured after hiding out at a family member's residence in The Bronx. He was taken to the 26th Precinct before 8 a.m., according to the NY Post. He was joined there by his attorney and a parent or guardian.
A police source told The Post, the young suspect lawyered up and isn't talking.
"Since he has a lawyer, he's not going to give anything up," the police source said.
Rodney Harrison, Chief of Detectives, announced the suspect's capture on Twitter.com on Thursday.
"We have located this individual. Thank you to everyone who reached out with information. This is an active and ongoing investigation," he tweeted.
The unidentified teenager was nearly 2 weeks after he reportedly fled from a car while being driven to a police station on Dec. 16. The NYPD released photos of him and asked the public to help locate him.
The NYPD normally does not release photos or identify minor suspects. But the boy was considered dangerous and a menace to public safety.
A 13-year-old suspect, Zyairr Davis, is currently in police custody. He told investigators the 14-year-old suspect stabbed Majors with a red-handled knife "in a stabbing, poking motion" and he saw "feathers" floating up from her coat in the chest area.
A third boy, who is 14 years old, was questioned and released, police said.
