Damn, is nothing sacred anymore?!?
A crew of robbers has struck three times in the Bronx in recent weeks – including one mugging where they beat a man and stole his valuables – even his Bible.
Police Tuesday released a surveillance video of the Bible-theft beatdown in hopes the public will help detectives identify one of the suspects.
The security camera filmed three young goons as they pounced on a man in the lobby of a building near Creston Ave. and E. 181st St. in Fordham Heights about 2 a.m. on August 8., police said.
One of the crooks followed the 64-year-old man as he entered the lobby, the video shows. The suspect grabbed the man from behind and wrestled him to the ground, punching and kicking him.
The suspect’s two accomplices – one wearing what appeared to be a T-shirt wrapped around his head – soon joined in the attack, cowardly beating the man while he was on the ground.
They grabbed the man’s bag and dragged him across the lobby floor in a tug-of-war. The attackers eventually prevailed, snatching the man’s bag and making off with his cash, cell phone and Bible, police said.
We get stealing his watch, wallet, cell phone, but his BIBLE?! There is definitely a special place in hell for these @$$holes.
