Executed

A man was shot in the head during a July 26 confrontation on Rogers Avenue.

Officials said the 32-year-old victim was found sprawled out on the ground between Parkside and Clarkson avenues just before 6 pm. Paramedics declared him dead at the scene.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward.

Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Help find her

Cops are asking area residents for help in their search for a 15-year-old girl who’s been missing since July 19.

Investigators said Sancia Senior, a resident of East 43rd Street between Lenox Avenue and Linden Boulevard, was last seen at her home at 11:38 am that Monday.

She’s described as a 5’8”, 159-pound teen with black hair and brown eyes. Family members said she was last seen wearing a green tank top with blue polka dots, green shorts and pink sandals.

Too much reach

A thief snaked his hand into a woman’s car on Avenue H on July 20, taking her wallet and credit cards.

The 51-year-old woman told police that she parked her car near East 58th Street at 6 pm, but left her windows open.

When she returned to her car a short time later, he bag was gone, cops were told.

Surrounded and robbed

Four thugs outmaneuvered a boy on July 22 and ran off with his cell phone.

The 16-year-old told police he was nearing the corner of Avenue H and Utica Avenue at 7:15 pm when the suspects surrounded him.

“Pass your phone over here,” one of the thugs ordered before running off with the goods.

Young boy shot

A 9-year-old was shot in the leg following a brazen shooting on July 16.

Witnesses said two men were arguing near the corner of East 45th Street and Church Avenue when one of them pulled a gun and opened fire as he made a hasty escape.

The bullets fired toward East 45th Street went wild, striking an innocent 9-year-old boy in the leg, officials said. The tot was treated and released at a local hospital.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this shooting to come forward.

Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers Hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Wipe out graffiti

As the ongoing war against graffiti continues, cops are now offering a $500 reward to anyone with information that can lead them to the vandals that mark up the community.

The hefty reward is part of the city’s new push to rid New York of graffiti, one of the leading quality of life complaints brought to police.

Anyone with information about graffiti vandalism in their neighborhood is urged to contact either 311 or 911.
