Surveillance video of an attempted robbery on Brooklyn Ave, that ended with the robbers in custody, has surfaced. With the help of community members and the NYPD, three people were arrested in connection with the incident.
The incident occurred just one week ago on Sunday November 25th, on Brooklyn Ave.
As previously reported on crownheights.info, two Jewish woman were accosted by three male blacks who attempted to rob them of their jewelry.
The victims screamed, causing the robbers to flee from the scene. A witness of the incident followed the three to a Utica Ave bus stop where they boarded a bus. NYPD was flagged down, and after hearing the story, stopped the bus. A brief foot pursuit ended with all three under arrest.
The three black males aged 17 to 19 years old, who do not live in the area, were taken to the 71st Precinct and charged with attempted robbery.
Surveillance video of the incident has surfaced, leaving no question as to the event. Two of the three attempted robbers are seen walking on the sidewalk, and corner the two woman against a bush, while a third lags slightly behind. The two grab at one of the woman, who pulls away from them while screaming. As soon as she breaks free of them, all three are seen fleeing down Brooklyn Ave.
