In Brooklyn, in Crown Heights, an attacker robbed a 10-year-old boy and his little sister, reports ABC7.

Police are searching for a robber who stole $8 in cash from a boy walking with his little sister in Brooklyn. The robbery victims are only 10 and 7 years old.

Details of the incident

The crime, which occurred in broad daylight on June 7 in Crown Heights, was caught on camera.

A 10-year-old boy, Alex, and his 7-year-old sister were innocently strolling in the 1400 block of Sterling Place around 11:00 a.m.

They were returning from the corner store. The robber approached them from behind and snatched the few dollars the boy had in his hands. The criminal then ran away. The video showed the man holding a pair of shoes.

“He grabbed my wrist with one hand and snatched the money with the other,” Alex said. “The way he tied me up, I knew I couldn’t escape.”

Even in that frightening moment, the brave fifth-grader knew exactly what to do.

“I said I would call the police and the man got a little scared. As soon as the thief took the money, he immediately ran away,” the boy said.


Alex says the police arrived an hour later, making him late for the orchestra competition.

The children were not physically harmed, but the robbery undoubtedly left a mark on their psyche.

Now the child is afraid that the suspect could appear at any moment and try to steal his money again.

“So sad to hear this. No one in their right mind could rob two small children,” said resident Jamie Vespri. “There are a lot of drugs in this area.” They lead to mental problems. One thing leads to another. An endless problem, a vicious circle.”
