A man wanted in connection with a mace attack in a Bronx laundromat, turned himself in to police on Monday night.
A Hillside, N.J., man has been charged with extortion, after allegedly claiming a woman’s son had committed a crime and demanding $10,000 to keep the alleged victim’s family from going to police.
Authorities said on Jan. 17 at around 9:30 a.m., two suspects forcibly entered the room of the victims inside the Harlem Vista Hotel, located at 75 Macombs Place.
The three victims – all males – were all taken to Jamaica Hospital. CBS 2′s Derricke Dennis reported that the injuries are not considered life-threatening.
The victim, a 25-year-old man, was approached by the suspects, who told him they liked and wanted his jacket, police said.
The suspects are still at large with the latest robbery coming on Jan. 21 at a gas station at 130th Street and Conduit Avenue in Ozone Park.
The female victim was walking on Riverside Drive when two male suspects approached her from behind and forcefully robbed her.
There was a 46-year-old woman and a 58-year-old man. Police are withholding their names, pending family notification.
The suspect, who was driving a late model Cadillac Escalade, drove alongside a 13-year-old girl on Northern Boulevard at 102nd Street in Corona and engaged her in a conversation, police said.
Lou Rispoli was so badly beaten in the assault that his family decided to take him off life support five days after the beating. The Medical Examiner then determined the cause of death to be homicide.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said he likes it and he welcomes it, but doesn’t seem convinced that the frigid weather is the reason for more than a week of no killing in the city.
Authorities said the attacker followed victims into elevators and assaulting them repeatedly by punching them in the face and head before robbing them.
Authorities said the suspect approached a 17-year-old victim and shot him once in the left leg.
