GLOVERSVILLE – A Gloversville woman robbed a victim, by jumping into the victim’s car, assaulting the victim and causing a crash, police said this week.

Brooklyn M. Hall, 28, of Gloversville, was arrested this week on a warrant charging her with second-degree attempted robbery and multiple misdemeanors in connection with the Nov. 5 incident on Burr Street in Gloversville, authorities said.

Hall is accused of assaulting the victim as the victim operated a car, according to police allegations filed in court. The victim then lost control of the vehicle and drove into a pole. A child was standing nearby at the time and almost got struck, according to the allegations.

Hall entered the victim’s vehicle and began punching her in the face, causing the victim to rapidly accelerate the vehicle into the pole, according to the allegations. Hall is also accused of throwing a coffee at the car’s windshield.

Hall had been wanted since shortly after the incident occurred, police spokesman Lt. Bradley Schaffer said. 

Schaffer described the incident as random and indicated that Hall and the victim were previously unknown to each other.

In addition to the attempted robbery count, Hall faces misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child, second-degree reckless endangerment, fourth-degree criminal mischief and third-degree assault. She also faces a violation count of littering.

Hall was arraigned and ordered held on $15,000 bail.
