Roosevelt Island Resident Robbed Saturday Night Near Subway Station - IPhone Snatched, Suspects Arrested By NYPD With Assistance From Public Safety Department

The Roosevelt Island Public Safety Report for 8/20 - 21 indicated:

Robbery - PSD assisted NYPD in the arrest of two subjects.
I inquired of Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Vice President of Operations Fernando Martinez and Public Safety Department Director Keith Guerra for additional information.  Mr. Guerra replied:
On Saturday, August 20th at approximately 11:02 PM, a female island resident was robbed near the Train Station by two male juveniles; also island residents. Said juvenile male subjects assaulted the female victim while stealing her I-Phone. PSD & the NYPD were called. A canvass was performed by Officers from both agencies and subsequently, both subjects were apprehended and placed under arrest for Robbery. They were transported to the 114th precinct by the NYPD for processing. The female victim was treated and released by EMS on scene.
There have been other incidents in the past of cell phone robberies and snatches near the subway station.

It's probably a good idea to have the Public Safety Department Booth stationed near the subway, though not necessarily in front of the entrance where it currently is.

As reported in previous post, the Public Safety Department Booth is temporarily located at the subway entrance until it is moved across the street after completion of construction work by the MTA and RIOC.

The Daily Roosevelt Island Public Safety reports are published and archived on the Blog's middle sidebar.

If you live in government housing and commit a crime, you should be thrown out.
Zero tolerance.
These thugs are terrorizing a once peaceful community.
