Gang Pistol Whipped West Farms Man
Used His Credit Cards
By Dan Gesslein
The attack took place at around 10 pm on November 29 inside the Lambert Houses. As the 23-year-old man was exiting the elevator on the 5th floor of 2114 Bryant Avenue, the group struck.
Police say four men attacked the victim, striking him in the head with a firearm. The muggers stole the victim’s wallet, jacket/vest, and a credit card.
Members of the NYPD say less than an hour and a half later two women used the victim’s credit card at two different locations. They made off with $27 worth of merchandise.
The Lambert Houses is around the corner from the Bronx Zoo.
Cops released surveillance video of the suspects.
