Robbed right outside home
A 64-year-old man was beaten and robbed as he was dropped off in front of his home on Schermerhorn Street.
The victim told police he was entering his building between Smith and Hoyt streets at 4:35 p.m. on December 3 when a 5’10”, 160-pound black male in a jean jacket jumped him.
As the two wrestled, the suspect managed to pluck $130 from his right pocket, officials said.
The victim suffered a cut pinky as the two men fell to the ground.
The thief ran off after taking the money.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to come forward.
Calls can be made by contacting the 84th Precinct at (718) 875-6811. All calls will be kept confidential.
