A 45-year-old man who was looking to buy a motorcycle was robbed at gun point by the man who was supposedly going to sell it to him, police said.

The victim met up with the suspect on June 17 under the pretense that he was buying a motorbike. When the suspect arrived at a meeting place, he entered the backseat of the victim’s car and directed him to drive to 21-16 35th Street.

Upon arrival, the suspect allegedly pointed a firearm at the victim’s head and demanded money. The victim complied and the suspect fled with $2,500.

A video of the suspect is attached.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.

Acropolis where cheap bimbo transplants rent so they can get pounded into submission by strangers from local bars.

The Acropolis. If you had the bed bugs and no hot water, you’d be doing $2500 stick up jobs too.


He’s lucky he didn’t get killed.

Probably a craigslist deal that was too good to be true and ran over with the money before the “seller” changed his mind.

Be careful out there folks.
