Gun-Toting, Violent Mugger Loose in Brooklyn
Cops believe the same armed mugger struck twice in Brooklyn in the early morning hours last Saturday, March 19. They don't have him, but they finally released what they say are photos of him. At 3:30 that morning, the robber came up to a 63-year-old at a bus stop near Sullivan and Van Brunt Streets in Red Hook, showed a gun, demanded money, took it and fled in a dark-colored SUV. At about 5 a.m., he walked up to a couple in their 30s in Windsor Terrace and demanded money. He smashed the woman in the face with his gun, took her purse, and fled in a dark-colored SUV.
Cops say he's 6-2 to 6-4, 220 pounds. Somebody catch this scumbag, please. 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.
