Violent Robbers in the Bronx — New Ones
Cops are asking for help in finding the jerks responsible for a couple of violent robberies this week in the Bronx, one in the north and the other in Morrisania.
On Monday, at about 5:50 p.m., a 74-year-old man was hit from behind by a scumbag at the corner of Park Avenue and Gouverneur Place in Morrisania. The robber repeatedly kicked him and took his cell phone and cash. Cops don't even know what he looks like, so they need some tips.
On Wednesday, at 12:25 a.m., two guys robbed a deli on the north side. One went behind the counter, fought with the 25-year-old clerk and stabbed him in the leg. See the video for a clue; the knife-wielder is described at 18-25 years old, 5-10 to 6-1, slim and wearing a blue hoodie with white lettering, over dark pants and sneakers. The robber's pal, who was waiting outside, is 20-30 years old, shorter and heavier, about 5-8, 170 pounds, wearing and a black and blue hoodie, a black waist-length jacket and carrying a black book bag. (It's likely that there weren't any books in it.)
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.
