Captain Timothy Brown, Executive Officer at 104th Precinct, called to alert us about the following crimes that occurred yesterday in Maspeth:
- A robbery occurred on north east corner of 63rd Street/54th Avenue at about 8:00 pm yesterday, 5/30. It was still light out! An Asian female senior was robbed by two male Hispanics wearing masks. One displayed a silver gun. They stole her Samsung Galaxy and other items including a Korean bible. She was not injured. The perpetrators fled northbound on 63rd Street. The 104th responded as well as a helicopter but the canvas met with no success.
- A burglary occurred on 52nd/66th Street near the dead-end trail at about 10:30 am yesterday, 5/30. The perpetrator forcibly broke into the rear door and stole money and jewelry. The victims were Asian. Neighbors say to keep an eye out for a white Cherokee jeep, 2002-2004 with a dent on the passenger side. This vehicle may or may not be involved. If you see it, get license plate number and call it in to the 104th Detective Squad so they can look into it.
