Police beat

Car wash stick up



A young man bought a soda from a car wash located at 309 W. 230th St., partially unzipped his sweater, pulled a black handgun out of his hoodie and demanded cash, a 21-year-old woman told police Monday.

He snatched $900 from the female employee saying, “Give me all your money,” according to police. Officers said the gunman threatened to shoot anyone who followed him out of the car wash.

The case remains open.



2. Slashed at Silhouette

A 22-year-old man told police Sunday morning that he accidentally walked into a couple that was arguing and was slashed while leaving Silhouette Restaurant and Lounge.

Officers said the man required four stitches. He told police he couldn’t tell who knifed him because a large crowd gathered outside the club near West 234th Street and Broadway. 

The case remains open.


3. Droid stolen at gunpoint

Police said someone snuck up behind a 23-year-old while he was talking on his cell phone outside 6171 Liebig Ave., pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and ordered the man to hand over his phone.

The 23-year-old told officers Sunday that the suspect forcefully tugged the $250 Verizon Droid from his hand.

The case remains open.


4. Groper on the loose

Officers said a man groped two women in Kingsbridge early Monday morning.

A 35-year-old woman told police a man squeezed the right side of her butt as she walked past Albany Crescent and West 231st Street just before 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 17. Police said the man pedaled away on his bike, riding toward Albany Crescent.

A few minutes later, police said the man grabbed a 40-year-old woman’s butt near 150 W. 197th St. He watched as she walked down steps near West 229th Street and Kingsbridge Terrace and then grabbed her crotch, police said.

The case remains open.

5. Robbed at the barbershop

A 27-year-old was sitting at a 150 W. 228th St. barbershop, when two men dragged him out into the street, pummeled him and ran off with his cell phone, $1,700 in cash and his $650 iPhone, according to a Sept. 19 police report.

The suspects then ran away.

The case remains open.
