Robbers on the Run in Washington Heights: Help Cops Find Them
Four scumbags broke into an Upper Manhattan apartment on Valentine's Day, where they held up five residents at gunpoint while looting the home, and cops want your help bringing them to justice.
Around 4 a.m. on Feb. 14, two of these suspects climbed through a window and two busted through a door at 601 West 185th Street before terrorizing the victims and robbing them. The crims stole a laptop, cash, and cell phones and fled.
Nobody was hurt.
One of the jerks is described as a 20 to 25-year-old black male. He's about 6-foot and 200 pounds, police say. The other three perps are said to be 20 to 25-year-old Hispanic males. These men are 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-11 and 150-200 pounds.
