69th Precinct


Stunning robbery

An armed crew mugged a couple on Ralph Avenue on Jan. 10 — attacking them with a stun gun.

Cops say the couple was walking to a car parked near E. 80th Street at 3:45 am when the suspects attacked, zapping both with the gun.

One of the victim’s tried to escape, but the suspects chased him down, giving him another dose of electricity before running off with his cash and jewelry.

The suspects also fired three shots at the female victim during the terrifying ordeal, cops were told.

Alleged shooting

Cops arrested a 17-year-old who they claim nearly killed another man on Avenue J on Dec. 30.

The teen, who was arrested last week, was allegedly arguing with his victim near E. 81st Street at 11:24 am when he pulled a gun and opened fire, hitting his victim in the neck.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Cops charged the teen with attempted murder.

Money grabber

Cops arrested a man they say tried to swipe a wad of cash from a man on Glenwood Road on Jan. 15.

The victim told police that the thief was eyeing him for awhile near Rockaway Parkway at 2 am. When he finally paid for something at a local store, the suspect lashed out, taking the money out of his hands.

But he didn’t get far: cops from the 69th Precinct caught up with the thief a short time later, charging him with robbery.
