    Any word on if this short robber dude actually had a gun?

  2. don't think so  

    It was my wife that was mugged 3rd. He didn't actually show it to any of the 4 victims. However, it isn't the kind of thing that I like to gamble on.

  3. Hmm

    Pretty ballsy, considering where they occurred and the time of day. Hopefully it's not the start of a trend.

  4. a clean shaven  

    teenage black male?! In Morningside Park?! NO WAY!!! How have they still not caught him?! He must stand out like a sore thumb in that neighborhood!

    there was a nice helicoptor search of morningside park, it's rather amusing to watch them hop over EC to do another round.

    That's pretty audacious territory for the average robber. It's barely nighttime at 7 PM.

    I love the graphic. Nice choice, bwog.

    NYC gun laws only take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens and put them right in the hands of criminals. If I had my colt 45 and this guy tried to rob me... well lets just say he won't be bothering anyone else...

  9. he strikes again

    According to CU safety, the same guy robbed 2 more people on Thursday night.
