Our new NCO sent the following to COMET President Roe Daraio and responded to her question regarding a recent slashing incident in west Maspeth. You should be able to see the video even if you don't have Ring.
THIS INDIVIDUAL IS GOING AROUND THE AREA STEALING PACKAGES OFF STOOPS. IT HAPPENED AROUND THE VICINITY OF 56 STREET AND ARNOLD AVENUE. WE HAVE A CLEAR VIEW OF A VERY DISTINCT JACKET HE IS WEARING. BTW IN REGARD TO THAT SLASHING YOU CONTACTED ME ABOUT, I BELIEVE ABOUT A WEEK AGO. AN ARREST HAS BEEN MADE. ARREST WAS MADE IMMEDIATELY THE DAY AFTER!
POLICE OFFICER ETIENNE
NEIGHBORHOOD COORDINATION OFFICER
We would like to inform you on an incident that took place earlier this morning. At approximately 5:45 am this morning, officers responded to a call for shots fired at Cypress Hills Street and Jackie Robinson Parkway, on Cypress Hills Street. This incident originated in the confines of the 75 Precinct, before ultimately ending in the 104 Precinct. Upon arrival, officers observed a male victim who had been shot. The victim stated he was driving North on Cypress Hills Street, when a 2019 White Acura Sedan, Pennsylvania Plate LVP9801 pulled up next to the victim's vehicle and stated "why did you cut me off I will light you up" then proceeded to fire approximately 4-6 shots at the vehicle, with one bullet grazing the victim in the back. The White Acura then fled the scene and the victim was treated for his injury. This incident is currently under investigation, if anyone has information please contact the 104 Precinct.
