The New York City Police Department is seeking information on three suspects involved in a hit-and-run robbery that took place in the Bronx over the weekend, another incident that illustrates the ongoing danger to citizens from criminals who have been emboldened to prey on the general public by the soft on crime policies of political leaders.
It was early Saturday morning when the victim, a 39-year-old male, was walking across the road at 898 East 169th Street in the Bronx when a black sedan suddenly swerved, violently striking him and sending him flying through the air.
While the victim was laying on the ground, the occupants of the car, which had stopped, exited the vehicle with one running up to him and proceeding to steal his belongings before speeding away from the crime scene.
A surveillance video of the incident was released by the NYPD on Sunday and posted on Twitter.
“WANTED for ROBBERY: Do you know these guys? On 7/23/22 at approx. 6:40 AM, opposite 898 E 169 St in the Bronx, the suspects struck a 39-year-old male with a car, then proceeded to forcibly take his property,” the NYPD wrote.

After fleeing the scene, the suspects then returned to check the severely injured man’s pockets again according to police.
NYPD described the first robber as a “male, dark complexion, thin build, Afro hair,” who was last seen “wearing black pants, black sneakers and a hooded sweatshirt.”
The second robber was described by police as a “male, dark complexion, thin build, Afro hair” who was last seen “wearing light colored sweatpants, a black hooded sweatshirt and sneakers.”
The third man inside of the car was described as a “male, dark complexion, thin build, short hair” who “was last seen wearing black pants, and a light colored hooded sweatshirt.”
The victim who was on his way to work at a bodega when he was hit, suffered significant bodily trauma and was taken by EMS to a local hospital where he was in critical condition.
“One guy hit him, one guy robbed him, another one came over and robbed him again, oh, no,” a witness told NBC New York.
“It’s scary walking the streets,” she added. “You don’t know what’s gonna happen out here anymore.”

It is unclear whether the men in the car knew the victim. Police are conducting an investigation and have reached out for tips that can be given confidentially through the NYPD’s Crimestoppers website and anonymous tip hotline.
