Police have released video that shows four men who allegedly assaulted, tied up and robbed a young woman at a Crescent Street hotel yesterday.
Police say that the men put on masks and forced their way into a room occupied by a 27-year-old woman at the Ramada by Wyndham Long Island City hotel, 38-30 Crescent Street, at around 4:45 p.m.
The four knocked on the woman’s hotel room door and then muscled their way inside. They assaulted the victim at gunpoint and bound her with duct-tape. The group then took the victim’s iPhone, $100 cash, her driver’s license and a debit card.
The victim was later treated for minor injuries at Mount Sinai Hospital-Queens, and was later released.
The four were caught on surveillance video putting on their masks before the incident.
