Knife Mugging on Carroll Street

Crown Heights, Brooklyn — This past Thursday, April 26th, a Bochur walking home on Carroll St between Troy and Schenectady was mugged by a Black male wielding a knife. The incident took place at around 2:00am, the Bochur was approached by a Black male, average height and described to be around 20 years of age, and he pulled a knife on the Bochur and demanded his wallet and cell phone, then told the Bochur to start walking towards Troy Ave.

The moment the Bochur turned around, he heard the mugger start running in the other direction. He began chasing him while calling police on another phone that he had on him. The short pursuit ended when the mugger ran into 1625 President St. a building located on the corner of President and Schenectady.

More in the Extended Article.

Police arrived shortly after receiving the call and did a quick canvass of the building, which did not yield any results. Officers said that they cannot do an apartment to apartment search for the mugger.

Local residents describe the building as a source for mischief, drugs and violence, where loiterers hang around in the stairwells of the building as well as on the front stoop. Additionally, CrownHeights.info was told that this isn’t the first time there was a mugging and the perp fled into this building.

Again, we would like to alert and warn all residents that it’s the season for such crime. Please take extra care when walking out late at night, try not to walk alone, if you see something suspicious don’t even hesitate to call for assistance. Keep Shomrim on a speed dial.

If you feel that you are in danger call 911 immediately as well as Shomrim at (718) 774-3333 – 24/7

Shomrim has patrols out every night and are ready and able to assist in any matter, do not hesitate to call!

    We should get surveillance cameras facing the entrance of the building on President because there was repeated incidents.

    If I was that Bochur, I would ask Shomrim to spend a few nights with me parked outside that building in a car with tinted windows.
    As soon as that perp walks out dial 911!

    How about it?

    Why was the police not able to do an apartment to apartment search for the mugger, because if the police don’t do these searches we will never be able to catch these muggers & they will just mug more Jews.

    Sorry he was attacked. It’s a lousy feeling.
    Rabbi Jacobson, founder of Hadar HaTorah (ZT’L) had a group called ”The Macabees” back in the 60’s. They were able men with chains.

    PEOPLE SHOULD NOT WALK ALONE AT NIGHT ESPECIALLY AT THAT HOUR. BUT AS A SAFETY MEASURE THAT MIGHT MAKE THESE — THINK TWICE, PERHAPS CARRY A CHEAP WALLET STUFFED WITH PHOTOCOPIED DOLLAR BILLS AND HAND THIS TO THE MOMZER. IF THEY GET ENOUGH OF THESE WALLETS THEY MAY DECIDE TO TRY ANOTHER NEIGHBORHOOD. YOU GOTTA BEAT THEM AT THEIR OWN GAME.
