Two men were arrested Saturday for stealing a city vehicle, hitting a cab and then crashing it into a barbershop in Manhattan.

Police say the truck was stolen just after 11 p.m Friday from the parking lot on Pike Street.
 
The vehicle first struck a car on East 82nd and First Avenue, and another on East 86th and First Avenue, before slamming into the barbershop on First Avenue.
 
The two occupants were placed under arrest and taken to New York Presbyterian to treat minor injuries.
 
Ali Amjae, who owns the store next to the barbershop, was without power Saturday morning. But he told NBC New York he felt "pretty lucky" that the truck didn't hit his store.
 
Police identified the suspects Saturday afternoon as Raynel Greene, 32, of Manhattan, and Raymond Moore, 36, of the Bronx.
 
Greene and Moore were both charged with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, and Greene was also charged with reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident.
