The New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in ascertaining the whereabouts of the three unidentified males seen in the attached surveillance video in connection with a home invasion robbery that occurred within the confines of the 120 Precinct. Details are as follows:
It was reported to police that on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at 3:22 a.m. three unknown individuals approached three victims, a 32-year-old male, a 29-year-old male, and a 27-year-old female, who were all sitting in front of a private residence on Saint John’s Avenue. The individuals displayed firearms and forced the victims inside of the residence and ordered them to lay down on the floor. The individuals demanded money and one of the them pistol-whipped the 32-year-old male in the head. The individuals then went into the bedroom where the homeowner, a 32-year-old male, was sleeping and pistol-whipped him in the head as well. The individuals ransacked the residence and removed more than $1,000 cash, a wallet containing four debit and credit cards and an Apple iPhone 7. (The cellphone was later recovered.) The individuals fled the location in an unknown dark colored vehicle. The two victims who were assaulted sustained only minor injuries and refused medical attention at the scene.
- Two of the individuals were wearing dark colored masks, dark colored clothing and gloves.
- The third individual was not wearing a mask, and is described as a male black with a slim build, a beard and a tattoo on his right forearm. He was last seen wearing baseball hat, a t-shirt, sweat pants and sneakers. A surveillance video from the incident location depicting the third individual exiting the residence is attached.
