On May 3rd, at approximately at 11:55 p.m., a New Rochelle Police Officer on patrol was approached by an adult male, aged 23, who stated he was just robbed at gunpoint by three Male/Hispanics, who stole his car and $3000.00 in cash. The victim further stated that he had arranged to meet a familiar party on Lawton Street to purchase a vehicle. He had just withdrawn money from the Chase Bank at 270 North Avenue, and was exiting the parking structure onto North Avenue when his vehicle was blocked by a blue sedan, occupied by the three men. The men exited the sedan and approached the victim’s vehicle and ordered the victim and a female passenger out of their vehicle. Two of the suspects displayed handguns. Two suspects then entered the victim’s vehicle and drive away southbound on North Avenue, with the blue sedan following close behind.
