Armed Bronx Jacket Thief on the Loose
A man was robbed at gunpoint for his orange Marmot jacket in the Bronx recently, cops say.
The sartorially minded scumbag (pictured here) approached a man on the corner of Hunts Point Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard on Dec. 14, pulled out a gun, took the victim's coat and nothing else, and then fled the scene, cops report in a just-released statement.
The suspect is said to be a 5-10 black male between the ages of 18 and 20.
The victim was not injured.
