A Westchester County man was sentenced to five years in prison for shooting an AK-47 at a food delivery driver last year.
Perry Foy, 38, of Yonkers, was sentenced on Friday June 24 for repeatedly shooting a pizza delivery boy he did not know.
“There will be zero tolerance for terrorizing communities with dangerous weapons like AK-47s,” said Westchester County DA Miriam Rocah. “As I outlined in my recent gun safety plan, our top priority is to get illegal guns off our streets with the promise that my office will vigorously prosecute those who commit gun crimes. ”
On Saturday, Jan. 16, 2021, at around 1 a.m., Foy fired an AK-47 rifle multiple times at a man getting out of his car to deliver pizza to an apartment on South Waverly Street in Yonkers, the prosecutor’s office said. .
The victim, who was a stranger to Foy, was not physically injured but his car was repeatedly struck, officials said.
Yonkers police arrested Foy shortly after the incident and seized the rifle, along with two magazines containing a total of 60 rounds, police said.
Foy was sentenced to five years in state prison, with five years of post-release supervision, after pleading guilty to attempted assault.
