VIDEO: Man punches, slams victim to the ground in Inwood robbery; suspects at large
Two unidentified suspects linked to an April robbery in Inwood are being sought out by the NYPD.
Police say two men, aged 35 and 40, were approached by three individuals late April at 3:05 a.m. on the corner of 9th Avenue and West 203rd Street. One of the suspects punched the 35-year-old to the ground. The same suspect grabbed the second victim and slammed him to the ground. Angel Pimentel, 29, of the Bronx and one of the suspects connected to the robbery, showed a handgun, and he and the other wanted men allegedly took a chain, two rings, one belt, eyeglasses, $900, $420, an iPhone 13 and ID.
The 35-year-old was knocked unconscious and suffered pain and bruising to his head. The 40-year-old suffered pain and swelling to his face.
Police report the same three suspects approached a 20-year-old woman sitting in a Toyota Camry that same morning. Police say one suspect pulled out a handgun and demanded her belongings. The wanted men allegedly took her purse, ID, keys, a bank card and a wallet.
Pimentel was arrested by police on May 5 and charged with robbery. The other two men remain at large.
