After a violent attack on two Crown Heights residents, which left one with a broken nose, Crown Heights Shomrim shared that a second of the suspected five perps has been arrested.
The attack which occurred on March 14th took place near the corner of Albany Ave and Carroll Street at around 9:15 pm. Crown Heights Shomrim received multiple calls from witnesses reporting the attack and quickly dispatched multiple units to the attack scene.
Shomrim followed them as they entered an apartment building on St. Johns Place and waited for the Police to arrive. Unfortunately, by then the perps had already disappeared inside the building.
The first arrest was made in record time just a day after the incident. On their Twitter, Crown Heights Shomrim shared that a second of the five perps is under arrest for attempted robbery and gang assault. The second perpetrator, a minor of only 16 years of age has had at least six prior arrests.
Shomrim hopes that the remaining perpetrators will be arrested in the coming days.
The second perpetrator can be seen in the video below punching one of the victims.
