“The Neighborhood Coordination Officers gave us a good description and we were able to recognize the suspect as he was walking along the sidewalk, it was good teamwork.
We also recovered a very realistic looking pellet gun that was used in the robbery,” said Sergeant Badia.
NYPD Housing Anti-Crime Police Officers and Neighborhood Coordinating Officers (NCO) in Harlem worked together to arrest a robbery suspect. On Friday November 11, Police Service Area (PSA) 6 NCO Police Officers Carbajal and Sadomskiy were the first to respond to a commercial robbery at 2651 Frederick Douglas Boulevard.
Employees and customers at the store told the officers that a man in his 40’s had entered and demanded money after displaying a firearm. The suspect fled when a woman admonished him for pulling a gun in front of her child. Sergeant Badia and Police Officers Francisco, Soriano and Pimental — all PSA 6 Anti-Crime officers — heard the description of the subject that was broadcasted over the radio by the NCO’s who were at the location. The Anti-Crime officers spotted the suspect nearby and placed him under arrest.
