Man Robbed at Gunpoint Inside Garage at Center Boulevard Building: NYPD

45-45 Center Boulevard (Google)

Oct. 3, 2019 By Allie Griffin

A 27-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint in the garage of a Center Boulevard apartment complex.

At around 11 a.m. inside 45-45 Center Blvd, two masked men approached the victim — one with a firearm — and demanded he hand over his property, the victim told police.

The two men punched him and removed his bag which contained jewelry of an unknown value, according to police. The men then fled the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.

Crime is Down (NOT) , low crime area??? Maybe 5 years ago. Crime is on the rise and residents know it.

Agreed, this single crime means crime is up in a city of 8 million

Maybe if Trump didn’t lie about building the wall things would have been better?

No, maybe if the idiot mayor didn’t sto the police from doing their job and making muchneeded arrests, so he could say crime is down.

I agree, Trump completely failed to build the Great Wall

But de Blasio definitely forced people to commit crimes lmao

Trump wants open borders

If Trump secured our borders this wouldn’t be such a problem. It’s a shame you voted for the soft-on-crime rich luxury condo developer. Sad!

I’m sure the 108th will get right on the case, as soon as they can back their patrol cars off the sidewalk.

Hey JVB, how is your discussion with the cops going to stop them from parking on the sidewalks of 50th Avenue? Still waiting for you to get back to us. Sending out press releases means squat if you don’t get results.

Foot Patrols Now

If this incident happened as alleged, it would be proof that even crooks know the 108 doesn’t do its job. Zero foot patrols and people being murdered and robbed steps from the precinct. 108, are you listening? You need to patrol more than just the path between the precinct and the deli on Vernon.

Seriously. Officers are nowhere to be found in the neighborhood and, overall, seem to have a bad attitude.

Do you really think this was homeless people? This was a targeted armed robbery in a low crime area. Even mentioning homeless is ridiculous.

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards held a candlelight vigil for Tyre Nichols outside Queens Borough Hall Monday, Jan. 30 after Nichols’ death at the hands of police officers in Memphis, Tenn., made national headlines for the brutality in which the officers beat him.
