Two men rammed their car into a vehicle in Elmhurst Saturday night and then robbed the occupants of the vehicle at gun point.

The suspects drove their Dodge Durango into an Audi outside of 80-42 47th Ave. at around 7:20 p.m. on March 6. When the two occupants of the Audi got out to inspect the damage, the suspects walked up to them with a handgun and demanded their property.

The suspects approached one of the victims — a 35-year-old man — and took his Samsung cell phone, a wallet containing debit cards and $500 cash. The other victim, also a man, fled the scene on foot and one of the suspects fired a single gunshot at him. The shot missed and both the victims were uninjured.

About 90 minutes later, a woman was seen using the victim’s credit card inside a Brooklyn grocery store located at 1990 Bedford Ave. Surveillance video was captured of the woman, who is wanted for questioning.

The first suspect is described as being between 28 and 35 years of age, and being around 6 feet tall and weighing approximately 175 to 185 pounds. The second suspect is described as being approximately 6 feet 1 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds.

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

Chirlane McCray encourages residents to ‘intervene’ in violent situations after calling to defund the police. We need to ask her how to intervene in the above situation.
