Police: Suspects in Soundview robbery responsible for other crimes

Posted: Updated:
SOUNDVIEW -

Three recent crimes in the Bronx, including a bodega robbery in Soundview, were committed by some of the same people, according to police.

Police say they are searching for several individuals, two of whom allegedly robbed a bodega on Saint Lawrence Avenue.

The two suspects are seen on surveillance video last Sunday, pulling out guns in the store and demanding money from a 52-year-old employee. They made off with $1,000 in cash, according to authorities

Bodega manager William Medina says he was working with his nephew when the robbery happened, and that one of the suspects told him he was going to die "right now."

Police are now pointing one or both of those same suspects as possibly being involved in one robbery and another attempted robbery two days earlier on Nov. 10 that happened just 15 minutes and a mile-and-a-half apart on Castle Hill Road and Seward Avenue.

Police describe the two suspects as somewhere between 17 to 20 years old. They say a woman was also involved in the first two incidents.

Police say though a gun was involved in each incident, no one was injured. They have no suspects in any of the cases.
