Yes folks, the man dubbed the 'ice-pick robber' has come to our fair community. After hitting Co-Op City in The Bronx three times, he came to Peter Cooper Village and then to Stuyvesant Town. First he struck inside a building on Cooper Road in Peter Cooper Village on Monday evening (Nov. 22). The victim was a 63-year-old woman.
Then he moved next door to Stuytown where according to police, he robbed two women in separate incidents only minutes apart on Thursday (Dec. 2).
