A Bronx man's car was broken into and driven off by a group of men over the weekend, taking one of the few prized possessions he has.
Alberto Revilla's 2021 Honda CR-V was stolen from him outside of 500 East 134th St., the shelter where he had been staying ever since his home was destroyed in a fire. The fire  broke out at Mitchell Houses a little over one year ago and took the life of his dog and a 6-year-old neighbor.
"That car meant everything... it's the only thing I had left," said Revilla.
Surveillance video shows a dark SUV near the stolen vehicle with multiple men running between the two cars. Revilla saw this video and noticed some striking similarities to a car robbery that News 12 covered on Wednesday
