Post by: the80s on March 01, 2019, 03:42:30 PM
Cops are looking for suspects who violently attacked and robbed a man at the Elmhurst/Woodside border last month.

According to police, at around 11:45 p.m. on Feb. 13, a 22-year-old man was walking on 72nd Street towards Roosevelt Avenue when three men pulled up beside him in a white Jeep. The crooks chased the victim into a nearby parking lot, hit him with a blunt object and demanded his property.

The suspects took the victim’s wallet, cellphone, keys, money and jacket before fleeing the scene.

Why would the police decline to give the names of the suspects?

fear of tipping them off so that they might flee the area? just a thought.
