PO Saponieri, 110th Precinct Community Affairs, just called to let us know that we had a robbery in Elmhurst.
At approximately 4:00 pm this afternoon, two male juveniles aged 14 and 15-years old with a gun entered a business at 85 #s on Grand Avenue. They pistol-whipped the husband and wife and threatened to stab them. They stole $468 and cell phones and fled. The victims called 911 and provided the description of the robbers and the direction of flight.
The 110th Precinct responded and apprehended them in the train station. The gun they were carrying happened to be fake.
PO Saponieri said he will keep us updated if there is any new information.
Great job by the 110th Precinct!!
