The 113th Precinct was happy to report they nabbed the suspect that had been targeting elderly women!

Police in the 113th Precinct had been on high alert hoping to apprehend a suspect that, on two separate occasions, during daytime hours, had punched and robbed elderly woman on Linden Boulevard. The individual is approximately 45 years old, wearing a tan jacket and riding a light blue mountain bike.

Commanding Officer Deputy Inspector Marmara has asked those present at the January 20th monthly community council meeting to contact the precinct if they had any tips.

“It could be any of our mothers and grandmothers,” said C.O. Marmara.

The police had been manning a fixed post and have also been deployed along Linden Boulevard from Farmers to Francis Lewis in an attempt to capture the individual. It seems their efforts paid off. The precinct sent an email blast with notice of the suspect's capture. The email read:

The 113 Precinct Commanding Officer, Deputy Inspector Marmara would like to thank the 113th Precinct Detective Squad and the 113th Precinct Community for their outstanding observation and hard work, on apprehending the suspect wanted for the Robberies of our Community elderly. GREAT JOB!!!!

“This strikes at the heart of the community. This is a desperate individual preying on the elderly,” said C.O. Marmara at the community council meeting. "I am personally looking for him. This is a sick person.”

Despite this recent concern, the precinct continues to report an overall decrease in crime for the beginning of 2014 compared to the same period a year ago. This is in addition to the decreases seen in 2013 which made the precinct the second best in the city for crime reduction.
