Violent mugging on 72nd street
« 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.


Full story here, including photos of the suspects:

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.
