Christmas Eve Robbers Still Sought
The NYPD asks the public for help in solving a Christmas Eve robbery at Today's Mobile, Fifth Avenue and 28th Street. At about 6 p.m. that day, three people described as black males entered the store. One tried to distract the store employee while the two others tried to grab merchandise. One of robbers displayed the handle of a firearm. As the employee began to call 911, they fled, but not before snatching a laptop.
Tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips at nypdcrimestoppers.com or text info to 274637 (CRIMES), entering TIP577.
