1 Arrested, 3 Sought in Beating and Robbery: NYPD

Police say they’ve arrested one suspect and are looking for three others who allegedly beat and robbed a man in the Bronx last month.

The 61-year-old victim was robbed at about 9:30 a.m. on March 8 in University Heights.

One of the four suspects punched the man on West Tremont Avenue, knocking him to the ground, according to police.

A second suspect in a red and black hooded sweatshirt then punched the victim while he was on the ground, knocking him unconscious, police say.

The four robbers then stole $17 from the 61-year-old before taking off down Kingsland Place.

Paramedics took the victim to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.

The suspect who allegedly threw the first punch has been arrested, police say. The other three suspects, who are seen in the surveillance footage around the time of the attack, are still at large.

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