MASPETH & MIDDLE
VROBBERS HIT OTHER
The armed duo responsible for two
service station robberies in Maspeth and
Middle Village last weekend have held up
three additional businesses in Queens in
the last 72 hours, authorities said.
Police were able to get a good look via
security cameras at the wig-wearing
bandits in one of their most recent capers,
the Sept. 30 robbery of a Dunkin’
Donuts shop within a Speedway gas
station located at 134-14 Cross Bay Blvd.
According to law enforcement
sources, the crooks walked into the
station, displayed guns and demanded
cash. One of the perpetrators punched
a 52-year-old worker in the face, then
removed $50 in cash and fl ed the scene
with his cohort.
Police said the duo struck twice
more in south Queens early on the
morning of Oct. 1. They reportedly
stole $600 in cash from the 7-Eleven
store located at 224-01 Merrick Blvd.
in Laurelton at 3:14 a.m., then swiped
$1,340 in cash from the Sunoco station
located at 243-02 South Conduit Ave. in
Rosedale at 4:35 a.m. on Sunday.
The pair have been linked to two
armed gas station robberies in the 104th
Precinct’s confi nes that occurred within
30 minutes of each other on the morning
of Sept. 24. Law enforcement sources
said they stole $500 in cash from the BP
station located at 59-36 Maurice Ave. in
Maspeth at 1:30 a.m. that morning, then
headed over to the Mobil station located
at 69-08 Eliot Ave. in Middle Village, removing
$1,000 in cash at gunpoint.
Authorities further tied the pair to
the Sept. 24 robbery of a Shell station
located at 92-10 Astoria Blvd. in East
Elmhurst at 5:20 a.m. on Sept. 24. The
crooks displayed weapons and swiped
$1,000 in cash.
Detectives obtained security camera
footage of the suspects during the
Ozone Park caper. One bandit was
described as a black man wearing a
white long-sleeved T-shirt, blue jeans,
red sneakers and a short black wig. His
cohort was also described as a black
man who was last seen wearing a
white Lacoste baseball hat, a blue longsleeved
shirt, blue jean shorts, black
sneakers and a long black/red wig.
Anyone with information regarding
the suspects’ whereabouts is urged to

OZONE PARK MURDER
“If anything happens to me, give this
to my mother.”
That’s what an Ozone Park woman
allegedly said while providing a neighbor
with her wallet, credit cards and
personal information just before her
ex-lover allegedly came to her home
and killed her last week, prosecutors
announced on Monday.
Jerome Rivers, 52, was arrested
on Saturday, Sept. 30, on charges of
murder and criminal contempt for his
alleged role in the death of Gia Pender,
49, inside her Centreville Street home.
Sources familiar with the investigation
stated that Rivers and Pender may
have been in a romantic relationship.
Queens District Attorney Richard A.
Brown said that Pender had an active
order of protection barring Rivers
from contacting her. Nevertheless,
Rivers allegedly called her numerous
times while being held on Rikers
Island for two months.
Last Thursday, Sept. 28, prosecutors
said, Rivers contacted Pender
by phone and allegedly asked if he
could stay with her. A short time
later, Pender went to a neighbor and
said that “Jerome is coming over.” She
then handed her personal eff ects to
the neighbor and instructed that they
be given to her mother “if anything
happens to me.”
According to the criminal complaint,
Rivers allegedly called 911 at
6 a.m. on Sept. 29 and claimed that
he heard awoke to a thump and then
found Pender on the fl oor. He further
claimed that a 911 operator instructed
him to perform CPR, and that he heard
a popping sound while performing
EMS units and offi cers from the
106th Precinct arrived at the home
shortly thereaft er; Pender was pronounced
dead at the scene; an autopsy
conducted by the Chief Medical Examiner’s
offi ce determined that she died
of manual strangulation.
