No injuries were reported.

Stuart also is accused of firing at several officers on Friday morning in Ellenville, New York, police said. The shooting took place at a hospital, according to multiple reports.

Before his arrest, cops had described Stuart as armed and dangerous.

He was charged with robbery, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of stolen property and criminal possession of a controlled substance, police said.
