Migrant crime sprees hit the Big Apple…
According to a New York Post report, two men who are part of a migrant moped crew were busted for snatching cellphones right out of New Yorkers’ hands; a distressing video caught them in the act.
The video shows a migrant on a moped dragging a woman in the street.
Watch the video above.
From The New York Post:
The two suspects — Cleyber Andrade, 19, and Juan Uzcatgui, 23 — are allegedly part of a wider ring whose members are connected to 62 different instances of grand larceny throughout the Big Apple – including a shocking caught-on-video heist where a 62-year-old woman was brutally dragged down a street, police sources told The Post.
But cops are still searching for the main man, a migrant named Victor Parra, who was cut loose by a judge in December after getting picked up for grand larceny, sources said.
At a Monday press conference, NYPD Inspector Nicholas Fiore said Parra has convinced others to “go do his dirty work to grab phones and stuff.”
“He’s the big target,” Fiore said in a video posted to X. “He’s caused a lot of problems in New York City. And hopefully we’ll grab him, we get some headway on this.”
Most migrants come to NYC in search of a better life. Sadly, some come to commit crimes.
