Thursday, November 13, 2014 Approximately 3:45PM: A young man was walking down Carroll Street between Kingston and Albany when two thugs jumped him from behind. One perpetrator placed him in the a chokehold while yelling instructions to his partner, saying “take his wallet, take his cell phone”. The victim could not breath and let them take his belongings without putting up a fight.
After robbing their victim, the duo took off running toward Kingston Avenue. Moments later, the victim regained his breath and began chasing his attackers screaming “Chaptzem”. One passerby heard the screams for help and immediately tackled the perpetrator who was passing in front of him. The Stolen Cell phone and wallet were recovered. A group gathered around but while they were waiting for the police to arrive, the perpetrator gave them the slip and began running up Kingston Avenue and made a right onto President Street with a group of locals hot on his tail.
At that point the Shmira hotline received multiple calls from passersby about the commotion. As Shmira Members responded to the location a suspect matching the description was spotted on President Street near Troy Avenue.
