Bad timing

A man was arrested for stealing another man’s watch and ring at gunpoint on Flatlands Avenue on June 23.

The victim said he was driving with the suspect near E. 88th Street at 2:30 am when the man took his watch and ring, saying he was not going to get it back.

He later threatened the victim that if he tried to fight, he outside would shoot him. The victim said the suspect then grabbed the steering wheel, pulling over the car, and punched the victim in the face before fleeing.

The suspect is being charged with robbery and harassment.

Gunpoint robbery

Police arrested a man who they say stole a phone from another man at gunpoint on Glenwood Road on July 9.

Police say the man and four other unapprehended accomplices approached the victim near E. 83rd Street at 9:46 pm. The victim said the suspect placed a hand on the victim’s chest and demanded money. When the man said he did not have any, one of the other men placed a gun in the back of the victim’s neck, while the suspect searched through his pockets, retrieving a phone.

The suspect is charged with first-degree robbery.
