The police are looking for three suspects who robbed two men in separate incidents in Corona earlier this month.

The three men approached a 57-year-old who was walking in the vicinity of 99th Street and 38th Avenue at around 5 a.m. on July 3 and demanded money.

When the man refused, one or the three suspects grabbed him from behind and put him in a chokehold while the two other men removed his wallet that contained $1,000, police said.

The men then fled north bound on 99th Street and encountered a 29-year-old man at 37th Avenue and demanded money. When the victim refused, one of the males grabbed him from behind in a chokehold while the other two individuals removed his iPhone 12 and his wallet, which contained $50 and credit cards.

Anyone with information in regard to these robberies is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
