Boro Park Shomrim took down a violent criminal on Tuesday night, after the suspect bludgeoned a victim before robbing him at a train station.
The incident unfolded at the train station located at New Utrecht and 43rd Street, when the perp approached a man and hit him over the head with a metal wrench, knocking him unconscious and causing a severe head injury. The perp then robbed the man before fleeing.
A female bystander who watched the violent robbery take place began shouting for help, and her cries were heard by nearby Shomrim members, who immediately sprang into action.
Video from the scene shows multiple Chasidic men clad in black and white giving chase to the suspect before the footage ends. The suspect was ultimately caught by Shomrim at Fort Hamilton and 43rd Street, and promptly placed under arrest by the NYPD.
The victim was treated by EMS and transported to a local hospital for further treatment of his injuries.
YWN has learned that following the suspect’s arrest, the NYPD’s 62nd Precinct linked him to two similar violent robberies in NYC over the past two months.
