Three criminals posing as deliverymen
attempt thwarted robbery in the Bronx
BY HAZEL SHAHGHOLI
Cops are seeking the public’s assistance
in locating three men who attempted
an apartment robbery in the
Bronx, by having one male masquerade
as delivery person.
According to NYPD sources, the
fi rst assailant knocked on the door, declaring
himself to be delivering a package.
Believing his subterfuge, a 47-yearold
female opened the door only to have
the box thrown at her before a second
man burst into the apartment, menacing
the woman with a fi rearm while his
two accomplices waited in the hallway.
The incident occurred in the vicinity
of Sheridan Ave. and Marcy Place
on March 9 at 2:35 p.m.
NYPD report that a 57-year-old acquaintance,
who was present at the victim’s
home, grabbed the gun-wielding
assailant, forcing him out of the apartment,
after which the three imposters
fl ed the scene.
No property was taken and no injuries
occurred according to the 44th Precinct
The box-carrying fi rst assailant
is described by authorities as a Black
man, 20-30 years old, of thin build who
was last seen wearing a black coat, blue
sweatpants and gray sneakers.
The second, fi rearm-equipped attacker
is described as of Hispanic-
White complexion, 20-30 years of age, of
thin build, who was last seen wearing
black sweatpants, black sneakers with
his hair fashioned into a ponytail.

Hispanic-White man of average build,
last seen wearing a black coat, black
pants, white-and-black sneakers and a

hallway as events unfolded.

If funeral homes were all the same,
Ours wouldn’t be the family choice
The families of our community so often choose our funeral home. Some come to us to pre-plan
arrangements because we offer all the options and choices they desire. Others come to us at their
time of need seeking guidance, support and the certainty of a funeral service that is correct in
every way. Should your family fi nd itself in need of our services, we hope you’ll make the choice so
many in our community have.
