Man with Scarface Jacket Suspected in Robbery
Cops are on the lookout for a man wearing a Scarface jacket (no, really), and say that he and another man recently robbed a Bronx newsstand at gunpoint.
Around 7:15 p.m. on Jan. 6, the two suspected perps entered the shop at 1936 Crotona Avenue, and pulled out black handguns. The suspects, pictured here, took cash from the register and scratch-off lotto tickets, law enforcement officials say. They fled on foot.
The first alleged robber is described as a 5-foot-7, 170-pound Hispanic male, between 30 and 40-years-old. (He's also the accused crim in the black, leather jacket with "Scarface" written across the back.)
Authorities say that the second guy is a 5-foot-8, 200-pound Hipsanic male between 25 and 30-years-old.
The New York Police Department also wants your help finding this guy on the right. They say that he walked into the T-Mobile store at 2098 Bartow Avenue, the Bronx, on Monday, whipped out a silver gun, and demanded cash and cell phones.
Cops describe him as a 6-foot-2, 230-pound black male around 30-years-old. The suspect has a large build, medium complexion, and black hair, and was last seen wearing a black leather jacket, blue hoodie, black pants, and a grey knit hat.
