Group of Thieves Attack and Rob Two Men At Rainey Park: NYPD

June 7, 2019 By Max Murray

The police are looking for seven people who attacked and robbed two men at a Long Island City park last month.

The suspects, five men and two women, approached the victims at Rainey Park, located at 34th Avenue and Vernon Boulevard, at around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 16, and asked for the time.

A member of the group then punched one of the victims in the face and the suspects demanded the victims to hand over their possessions.

The first victim, a 28-year-old man whose jaw was broken by the punch, handed over his wallet, a smart watch, cellphone, credit cards, and debit card. The second man, 25, had his iphone and credit cards stripped from him.

The 28-year-old went to hospital to get his jaw treated.

The police released a video of the suspects.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.

Rainey Park became a muggers paradise many year ago. Not safe to go there even in the daytime.

Pat Macnamaracist how’s the continual year-over-year decrease in crime under DeBlasio mean “the 80s are back?”

Or are you one of those Trump Lovers that just blames all your life’s problems on “muh deblazeeyo?”
