Robberies in East Flatbush
According to this report on YourNabe.com, police from the 67th Precinct have issued a warning about two patterns of robberies in our area.
In one pattern, eight women (some of them seniors) have been robbed at gunpoint after leaving the subway station at Nostrand and Newkirk between 4 and 5 am. In the other pattern, criminals hail taxis near New York and Foster Avenues and rob the driver at gunpoint.
These incidents form part of the rising wave of major felonies in East Flatbush over the last year.
