Inwood, NY - July 27, 2014 - Fourth Squad detectives are investigating a robbery that occurred in Inwood on Saturday, 05/31/14 at 4:45 A.M.
According to detectives, a male victim, 42, while standing at a bus stop on Wanser Ave./Lawrence Ave., was approached by a male subject, who then stood next to him. Several minutes later, a late 1990’s black Nissan Maxima with black rims, pulled up near the bus stop and dropped off three male subjects and then drove off. All four subjects demanded money from the victim and began punching him in the face. As the victim put his arms up to defend himself, one of subjects pulled out a black hand gun and hit him in the face several times. The subjects took the victim’s cell phone and backpack containing painting supplies. The subjects fled the scene on foot westbound on Wanser Ave and then northbound on Clinton Ave.
Nassau County Police Ambulance transported the victim, who suffered lacerations to the face, to a local hospital for treatment.
