Armed robbery in Jackson Heights apartment building

By Bill Parry

JACKSON HEIGHTS – Police from the 115th Precinct were asking for the public’s help in finding four suspects wanted in an armed robbery. On Oct. 31, a 25-year-old man entered his apartment building on 89th Street in Jackson Heights where two of the four suspects were waiting for him.

One of the two suspects, armed with a gun, took the victim’s keys and went into his apartment, according to police. Once inside, the two suspects searched the victim’s home and removed an undetermined amount of cash, while two other suspects acted as look-outs, police said.

The armed suspect then pistol-whipped the victim and the suspects fled the location. The victim refused medical attention at the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
