Tyrone Hunter Could Spend His Life in Prison for Burglarizing Upper East Side Women
Tyrone Hunter, who terrorized three Upper East Side women in a creepy 2010 crime spree, will spend anywhere from 18 years to the rest of his life in prison, the Manhattan District Attorney announced today.
Indeed, the deets of Hunter's crimes are chilling, and it's a good thing he's going to be behind bars for a long time.
Here's what he did: Hunter accosted a woman in the hall of her apartment building on East 69th Street on Nov. 24, 2010, around1:15 p.m. He forced her into her apartment, made her undress, blindfolded her, and then stole her jewelry, TV, and laptop.
Around 9 p.m. that same day, he followed another woman into her building on East 83rd Street. He placed his hand over her mouth and demanded cash.
But the attacks didn't stop there.
The next day, the Bronx resident followed a third woman into her apartment on East 89th Street, throwing her to the ground before fleeing.
Hunter, 56, had pleaded guilty to one count of burglary in the second degree and two counts of attempted burglary in the second degree on Jan. 30, D.A. Cyrus Vance says.
