Cops arrested a 20-year-old Woodhaven man on February 18 after investigators determined he stole an $800 diamond ring during a February 7 sleepover at a friend’s home.
Police said Josabad Figueroa swiped the ring from a kitchen table at the 34-year-old victim’s 87th Street home.
Police said the victim noticed the ring was missing after Figueroa, the only guest at the sleepover, left the home.
When police arrived at Figueroa’s home to arrest him, the suspect jumped out a second-floor window to escape, police sources said. Figueroa later fought police as they attempted to handcuff him during his arrest.
He was charged with petit larceny and resisting arrest.
