An American citizen who is wanted in New York, United States on multiple criminal charges, was arrested during an operation Greenvale, Manchester on Wednesday.

He has been identified as 18-year-old Matthew Pinnock.

Pinnock is wanted on a provisional warrant of arrest for attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery, assault, criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, among other charges.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force's Corporate Communications Unit says he was nabbed by members of the Jamaica Fugitive Apprehension Team and Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime (C-TOC) Special Ops.

He was subsequently transported to Kingston where he remains in custody.

He is set to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Friday.
