The police are searching for two men wanted in connection with a gun point robbery that took place in Murray Playground (45th Ave and 21st Street) last month.
The two suspects entered the park at about 2:10 am Monday, Sept. 15, and approached a 22-year-old male and 22-year-old female. They displayed a firearm and demanded money.
The suspects removed a Samsung Galaxy cellular phone, a debit card, and $5 in cash from the male victim, and removed an iPhone and debit card from the female victim.
The suspects are both described as black males.
The police have released a photo of one of the suspects who using the male victim’s debit card at a Bank of America ATM, located at 2680 Broadway in Manhattan.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
Why is anyone hanging out in that park at 2 am anyway? Sorry, PC people, I’ll be more alarmed by this incident if it occurred at 2 pm. The neighborhood is a very safe place, but that doesn’t mean people shouldn’t be stupid and not make themselves targets for crime.
LIC has a Bank of America?! Booyah!
Only two kinds of people in the park at 2 am. Those robbing people, and those getting robbed. If you don’t know which person you are, you are the latter.
