Cops are looking to derail two suspects wanted for a subway robbery aboard a D train in the Bronx.
The two thieves snatched a necklace off a 37-year-old man as a southbound train pulled into the Kingsbridge Road subway station, located in the vicinity of East Kingsbridge Road and Grand Concourse, at 8:40 a.m. June 12, police said.
The unknown attackers initially walked past their mark on the train, when one suspect bumped into the victim’s leg, sparking an argument, cops said. The accomplice held open the train car door as the other suspect wrestled with the victim and took the necklace. The suspects exited the train, while the victim — who wasn’t injured — remained onboard, authorities said.
Police on Saturday released a surveillance video and photos of the suspects, who were observed on surveillance camera exiting a building on Creston Avenue, cops said.
Police described one of the suspects as having a thin build, approximately 6-foot-tall and approximately 20-years-old. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, gray sweatpants and white sneakers. The accomplice is heavy set, approximately 5-foot-7 and 20-years-old with dark hair and a beard. He was last seen wearing dark pants, dark colored sneakers and a dark colored hooded sweatshirt with the words Adidas written in white on the front.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
