We had two incidents that occurred that I want to share with you.
On Sunday, March 24th, approximately 12:40 pm, in the schoolyard of IS5, 51st Avenue/Jacobus Street in Elmhurst, a 17 year old male was approached by five unknown males. One of the males struck him with closed fists, the victim fell to the ground and was kicked to the body and head by the perpetrator. The perpetrator then took the victim's bicycle and fled southbound on Ireland Street. We are pleased to report the 110th Precinct Warrant Team apprehended the perpetrator. Identification was made through the Detective Squad's investigation.
On Monday, March 25th, at approximately 6:00 pm, in the vicinity of 72nd Place/Calamus Avenue in Woodside, a teenage male from IS5 was accosted by two unknown teenage males who attempted to rob him of his cell phone and wallet. This investigation is ongoing with the 104th Precinct Detective Squad. Our NCOs did a canvas of the area to look at any available video. If you live in this area and do have a video camera, please go back to the approximate day/time to see if you have any information that may help.
We have our meeting on Monday and you will have the opportunity to ask any followup questions then.
In the meantime, please keep a lookout and report any suspicious activity.
