Sedgwick Avenue Robbery Terrorizes Bronx Family
Cops say that two thugs busted into a Bronx family's apartment on February 7, tied up one victim with electrical cords, and threatened to shoot another victim and her child while shaking down the apartment.
During the Sedgwick Avenue robbery, the crims also shoved the woman and her kid into a back bedroom, and eventually made off with $900, two laptops, and a cell phone.
Nobody was hurt.
Cops describe the first suspect as a 5-foot-9, 145-pound hispanic male. The 20-year-old has black hair pulled into a ponytail, a lower-lip piercing, and was wearing a black jacket, blue hoodie, blue jeans, and a black baseball cap.
The second suspect is a 20-year-old Hispanic male. He is said to be 5-foot-9 and was wearing dark pants, a blue baseball cap, and a gray jacket at the time of the incident.
