At around 6 pm on February 1st, a 34-year-old man was exiting the elevator inside 140 Debs Place in Co-op City. Three men ran up behind him knocked him upside the head with a handgun.
As the victim fell to the floor, the three muggers riffled through his pockets and removed the victim’s camera, cell phone and wallet. It is believed they made off with $1,800 in cash and property.
Police released surveillance video from inside the Co-op City building and are hoping someone is able to recognize the suspects.
