Ice Pick Robberies
A parolee already accused of wielding an ice pick in a series of robberies in New York City elevators has been charged with two more similar muggings.
John Martinez was being held on $750,000 cash bail after his arraignment early Thursday in Manhattan. He was charged with three muggings in a Manhattan apartment complex.
A person of interest in New York City’s so-called ice pick robberies is awaiting an extradition hearing in New Jersey.
