Officers assigned to the 34 Precinct in Washington Heights arrested two men for robbery and possession of a stun gun last week. Police Officers King and Stapleton responded to the robbery call after the men approached a woman on Laurel Hill Terrace, displayed a stun gun and demanded her purse. The suspects then fled into Highbridge Park.
Police Officers King and Stapleton, along with help from additional responding officers, apprehended the suspects inside Highbridge Park a short time later. Two men were charged with robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.
