The New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects wanted for criminal impersonation of a police officer and robbery within the confines of the 46th Precinct (Bronx). Details are as follows:
On Monday, December 14, 2015 at 4:00 pm, at the intersection of Morris Avenue and East 182 Street, four unknown male suspects stopped their vehicle behind the vehicle containing the victims. The suspects exited their black 4-door sedan and approached the victim’s vehicle, identified themselves as police officers and instructed the victims, a 47-year-old male, a 26-year-old male and a 29-year-old male, to step out of their 2009 Chrysler Town & Country minivan. One of the four suspects entered the victim’s minivan and fled the scene while the other suspects fled in their sedan.
The suspects are:
- four male Hispanics, 20-35 years old, 5’6″ to 6′ tall, with medium builds.
- They wore shields around their necks, baseball caps, and what appeared to be protective vests (either as their top layer or under their shirts/sweatshirts).
