    A man was arrested for allegedly stealing a defibrillator from a Manhattan PATH train station Thursday, the second time he's been caught for the crime in about a month, police say. 

    The 20-year-old Newark man stole the defibrillator from the 23rd Street PATH station, then ran away, according to police. Port Authority officers responded and caught him with the equipment on a PATH train at the 33rd Street station. 

    The suspect resisted arrest but was eventually subdued and taken into custody, police said. He faces charges of grand larceny and possession of stolen property. 

    Port Authority Police say the suspect was arrested in December for stealing a defibrillator from the Newark PATH station. 

    It's not clear what the suspect planned to do with the defibrillators.
