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.

The first suspect is described as black, bearded and in his 30s. He was last seen wearing a black hat, a black hoodie, black pants and dark-colored shoes.

The second suspect is also black, bearded and in his 30s. He was last seen wearing a grey hat, a black coat, a black sweatshirt, black pants and grey sneakers.

The third man is described as heavy set, black and in his 30s. He was last seen wearing glasses, a black hoodie, black pants and dark-colored shoes.

The fourth is described as a light-skinned black man in his 30s, with a mustache and a slim build. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, dark green pants and black shoes.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

I didn’t know Constat” numbers from 30 yrs ago mattered compared over the last three yrs crime is up and all of the rap dancing cops buying pizza for gang members didn’t curtail the recent surge in homicides robberies rapes and assaults are we going to use the threshold that it was safer than 40 yrs ago when our commissar lost his ability to curtail crime.

Thank our mayor for giving much needed latitude for his constituents to do as they please. didn’t the lobby clerk or security challenge them? dirty mutts that when caught wont get much jail time. Its just going to get worse in this socialist metropolis of ours. We will wind up like Detroit or Baltimore soon enough.


why target that specific woman? it’s like they knew she was there or were watching her. so strange


Yes… if only we still had stop-and-frisk, the cops would have seen these guys through the walls of the hotel from their patrol car and stopped it before it happened.


Stop and Frisk worked more as a deterrent cause criminals were less likely to walk around with a gun. However, I know that common sense is not so common nowadays.


So, Mel, you’re saying that these four guys inherently look suspicious enough as is, that you think cops would have stopped and frisked them if they saw them walking down the street?


I’m saying that weak laws plus new restrictions on cops make these crimes more likely to happen.


No but cops could of maybe seen them prior to entering hotel and stopped and frisked them.


There were 1,905 homicides in 1989 and a record 2,245 in 1990.
Last year, there were 290.

So NO, it’s not the 1980s all over again.


Overkill to simply steal $100 and an iPhone. They could have just walked in and taken it through intimidation. What the actual heck?
