BRONX, NEW YORK (BRONX NEWS)- The old joke that doctors wear masks because they don’t want you to see their faces when they rob you seems to have been taken literally by a pair of cell phone thieves.


Two bandits dressed as surgeons, complete with masks and scrubs, walked into a Castle Hill cell phone store and made off with phones and tablets.

The bizarre incident occurred at around 6:45 p.m. on August 19. The pair walked into a Metro PCS store at 1204 Castle Hill Avenue, dressed as docs, and pushed their way behind the counter. 
The men rifled through the cash register and behind the counter making off with $200 in cash, 20 cell phones and six tablet computers.

The suspects are described as black males between the ages of 20 and 25. They wore medical scrubs, white and blue surgical face masks, latex gloves and dark sun glasses.

Anyone with information in either case is urged to call CRIMESTOPPERS at (800) 577-TIPS.
The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COMor by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

BRONX, NEW YORK (BRONX NEWS)- A 23-year-old worker in Co-op City lost four fingers on his right hand in a recent accident involving the use of a lawnmower in the local community, an acting general manager of the Riverbay Corporation confirmed this week.

Noel Ellison said that the temporary worker, whose name was withheld, had been assigned to the Grounds Department, supervised by Donovan Plummer, before the Aug. 12 accident.


Although Ellison wouldn’t comment on the specifics of the accident, an informed management source indicated that the victim didn’t follow proper procedures for the use of the lawnmower.

Ellison said that the 23-year-old worker was treated at Jacobi Hospital following the Aug. 12 accident.

An effort was reportedly made, with limited success, to reattach the victim’s four fingers.

“We really feel terrible about what happened to the young man who had four of his fingers severed in the lawnmower accident,” Ellison said this week. “From all the reports we have received, he was a good worker who could have progressed steadily if this tragic accident hadn’t occurred.”

Ellison emphasized, “It’s always tragic when something like this happens, but it’s especially tragic when this kind of thing happens to a young person who is just starting to make his or her way in the world.”
