The NYPD’s Police Impersonation Investigation Unit is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect in pair of carjackings last month in the 103rd Precinct, one of which resulted in a shooting.
The first occurred at about 11:50 p.m. on March 28, and the second at about 11:25 on March 30. In each case the victims were driving in their own cars when they were pulled over by two men in a dark Ford Crown Victoria with lights and a siren.
The two men identified themselves as police officers, removed the victims from their cars and restrained them before taking the vehicles. In the March 30 incident the victim was able to break free and run away, though he was shot in the process, wounded in one leg.
Anyone with information on the man’s identity or whereabouts is asked to call the Police Impersonation Investigation Unit at (718) 383-8067, or the Internal Affairs Bureau at (212) 741-8401. People also can call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477), or can submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
