Astoria Attacker Caught

The 114th precinct has swiftly put this story to bed – and caught a horrific perpetrator.


Yesterday, we told you about an attack in Astoria on an elderly man. The man was attacked and robbed in bright daylight – and the entire thing was caught on tape.

Swift choices have been made in his charges – he’s facing charges of second degree robbery and assault, as well and third and fourth degree weapons possession.
