The NYPD is looking for a group of men wanted in connection to a robbery that took place in Inwood on August 7. At about 10:20 p.m., five young men got into 55 Cooper Street by one of them posing as a food delivery guy; once they were inside, suspect #3 forced a victim into a rear bedroom of one of the apartments by displaying his gun. He then hit her with it, and she sustained injuries. Suspect #5 took money, a cell phone, and a purse from the house. The other suspects were standing around in the hallway during that time, and all of them fled in an unknown direction.
The suspects, whom the NYPD believes are Dominican men between 20 and 30, are described as follows:
Suspect #1: tall, slim build; was seen wearing a white t-shirt, dark-colored shorts, and a baseball cap.
Suspect #2: about 5’06”, tall, slim build, dark-colored shirt and pants, also wearing a baseball cap.
Suspect #3, who was armed with a gun: around 26 years old, 5’08”, slim build, wearing a black short-sleeve shirt, dark-colored pants, and a baseball cap.
Suspect #4: six feet tall, medium build, wearing a striped short-sleeve shirt, white jeans, and sneakers.
Suspect #5: approximately 20 years old, 5’10” with a slim build, wearing a red shirt, dark colored pants, and a baseball cap. Oh, and carrying a women’s purse.
