Police Search for Armed Muggers

Police are searching for two groups of men who held up victims at gunpoint in Crown Heights this month, stealing jewelry and money. Both incidents occurred in broad daylight.

From DNA Info:

Police said two men with guns held up a 52-year-old man on Pacific Street between Kingston and Albany avenues at 4:30 p.m. July 9. The victim handed over his wallet, cell phone and jewelry, and the suspects fled without hurting him, police said.

The suspects in the robbery were last seen wearing a bright orange, polo-style shirt and a dark-colored T-shirt, according to surveillance footage released by police.

The second incident took place at approximately 7:30 p.m. July 25. Police said two men armed with guns threatened a 55-year-old man in front of the Stop 1 Deli and Grocery on Flatbush Avenue between Winthrop Street and Parkside Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. They took jewelry and a bank card from the man, according to police.

    Nice to see that N.Y.C. is a “gun-free” zone! This is what happens when law-abiding citizens are at the mercy of the criminals because of gun control and its affects on obtaining firearms. To the politicians, who vote on gun control laws, thank you for making the streets unsafe while you all live in your safe buildings and neighborhoods with your own guns and/or bodyguards!

    “Pacific Street between Kingston and Albany” is really in Bed-Stuy, isn’t it? (Even if it’s considered North Crown Heights, I don’t think any Crown Heights Yidden live anywhere near there, at least not yet.)

    And “Flatbush Avenue between Winthrop Street and Parkside Avenue” absolutely isn’t Crown Heights either; it’s East Flatbush.

    Either way, though, I sure hope these criminals are caught soon!

      But if you draw a straight line through the two locations they probably passed by your house.
