Armed Robbery on Sunday night on the Park side of Gramercy Park West at 21st Street
At approximately 11pm Sunday night, a couple coming out of a local restaurant took a stroll around Gramercy Park.
A well-dressed white male brushed past them, and then stopped and looked around as if he were lost. He asked them if they knew where "Lexington Place" was. The female said she did not know, but she could look it up on her phone. The alleged perpetrator said he would get out his phone as well, but instead took out what appeared to be a black firearm. He demanded that they give him their money and jewelry.
I will be meeting with our Detectives from the 13th Precinct Squad this morning, so they can view our Gramercy Park surveillance camera footage.
