Police: two men suspected in New York City armed robberies

According to a news report, New York City police are looking for a pair of men who are believed to have committed a series of hold-ups. Officials say the pair committed or attempted to commit five armed robberies in less than a week.

The men are believed to have robbed a 24-year-old man at gunpoint in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, taking cash, credit cards and his red Ford Mustang.

According to a report by WLNY, law enforcement officials say they believe that the men have been using the Mustang in other robberies and attempted robberies. Police said the pair robbed a 41-year-old man at gunpoint in Hamilton Heights, Manhattan. They also reportedly had two attempted robberies, one in Chelsea and one in Astoria.

According to the news report, the men struck again in Chelsea when they robbed a 41-year-old man. In that incident, they did not use a weapon but did apparently threaten to use one.

None of the victims were injured, police said.

No one has been charged in any of these incidents, but if and when police make arrests, the suspects are likely to face one of three types of robbery charges:

  • Robbery in the first degree: this class B violent felony carries a 5-year mandatory minimum and a 25-year maximum prison sentence upon conviction.
  • Robbery in the second degree: a class C violent felony, the charge has upon conviction a 3.5-year mandatory minimum and a 15-year maximum sentence.
  • Robbery in the third degree: this is a class D non-violent felony. Conviction means that a person can be sentenced to from 2 years and 4 months up to 7 years behind bars.

If you face similar charges, contact a New York criminal defense attorney experienced in protecting freedom and rights.
