Councilman David G. Greenfield is outraged and disgusted by the brutal robbery of a 55 year-old Jewish man on Avenue M and East 8th Street in Midwood. The victim was beaten and robbed early Monday morning around 12:50am. He was punched, thrown to the ground and robbed by two criminals in hoodies. The victim is in stable condition at Maimonides.
“This is a shockingly brutal robbery in the heart of our Midwood community. It is heartbreaking that, especially during the holiday season, outrageous crimes like this are happening in our very own backyard. We can’t tolerate these kinds of crimes in New York City. My many thanks to Hatzalah and Shomrim who responded immediately to the victim’s call. If you know anything about this crime please call 1-800-577-TIPS,” said Councilman Greenfield.
Councilman Greenfield is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the two perpetrators of this horrendous crime.
