Gang of NYC robbers hitting local Bronx businesses at gunpoint: police

Bronx companies have been terrorized by a string of robberies believed to be carried out by a gang of not less than 4 younger males, police mentioned.

Over the past two weeks, the gang has knocked off a nail salon, a barbershop and two delis — brandishing weapons and grabbing money and jewellery from their victims, cops mentioned.

The primary of 4 incidents happened round 6:30 p.m. on March 12, when 4 males walked right into a nail salon at 53 West 181 St. and approached a 36-year-old man sitting inside together with his girlfriend. One of many muggers pulled out a gun, and the group made off with a gold chain and Cartier glasses valued at roughly $19,500, police mentioned.

A number of hours later, they hit up a barbershop at 2011 Anthony Ave. Apparently, the identical group of males threatened the folks inside at gunpoint and took off with money and jewellery valued at roughly $21,800 and roughly $600 in money, the NYPD mentioned.

A bit after midnight on March 19, three unidentified males burst right into a deli on the Grand Concourse, went behind the counter, brandished a weapon and stole a girl’s gold chain valued at about $3,800 earlier than fleeing, cops mentioned.

The group was seen robbing a salon within the Bronx. DCPI

They struck once more two days later, this time at Kings Deli at 117 West Kingsbridge Highway. Three thieves, brandishing weapons, took roughly $800 in money from the register, $1,000 in CBD oils and $1,300 in digital cigarettes. They ran from the shop westbound on West Kingsbridge Highway, police mentioned.

Nobody was injured in any of the robberies, the NYPD mentioned.
