August, 1977- NYC Police Finally Apprehend Son of Sam Killer

Last week, police arrested David Berkowitz, 24, a postal clerk, as he set out on what police say would have been his biggest killing … “Police! Don’t Move!” detectives yelled. “Okay,” David Berkowitz said quietly. ”You’ve go me.” And then he smiled. It was a strangely mundane conclusion to one of the largest and most publicized manhunts in history.
