A Jewish man was robbed at gunpoint on Friday night in Far Rockaway by a thief who made him take off his clothes before fleeing with them.
The victim, a 24-year-old Jewish man, was about to enter an apartment building in Far Rockaway, New York, when a man brandishing a gun ran up behind him. The incident occurred on Neilson Street, where the victim was approached by a man wearing a hoodie at around 6:30 p.m., police said.
