A second suspect remained outside by the driver’s door and police say he pushed the driver’s head into the steering wheel then forcibly removed the his money, cell phone, and assorted documents.

Both men fled west bound on Avenue L toward East 4th Street on foot, according to police. The 34-year-old driver didn’t suffer any serious injuries.

Police describe the first suspect as Black, 6’0”, 180 lbs., in his 20’s and was wearing a blue hat. The second suspect is also Black, 6’0”, 240 lbs., in his 40’s.

Police have released a surveillance photo of the first suspect.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident or the identity and whereabouts of these suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
