Thief Runs Over Cop And Injures Cyclist
According to The NY Post
A desperate crook made a wild car getaway through Midtown yesterday, running over a cop and mowing down a bicyclist as he sped away from a violent robbery, cops said.
The thief broke the 24-year-old cyclist’s pelvis, arm and both his legs on East 29th Street at about 6:30 a.m.
“His shoes were knocked off, and I saw his toes bleeding,” said Cecilia Cargill, 36. “He was unconscious, and I started praying over him . . . I was praying as he opened his eyes.”
The chaos began when the robber and another thug punched a 28-year-old man and grabbed his watch and bag at about 6:30 a.m. near Penn Station at 34th Street and Seventh Avenue.
MTA cops noticed the commotion and ran over.
One crook walked off while the other grabbed the robbery victim’s bag and jumped into a gold Infiniti sedan, running over a cop’s foot and hitting a 23-year-old woman.
He drove against traffic down Sixth Avenue, then turned the wrong way on East 29th Street, cops said.
Surveillance footage recorded the robber’s car swerving before smashing into cyclist Mohamed Al-Matin, catapulting the man and his bike to opposite sides of the street, police sources said.
“His feet were on the sidewalk, and his body was in the street. The bike was all the way across the street,” said Cargill, who was on her way to work at a nearby hotel when she saw the crash.
“He was trying to lift up. I said, ‘Don’t move, God is going to help you.’ He looked like, ‘I’m dying, help me.’ ”
The robber kept going, speeding across Park Avenue before smashing through a light pole and into the closed New Absolute Laundry at 29th Street and Lexington.
“I saw him coming like crazy, the wrong way, the opposite way,” said a cabby named Soliman, 54.
“He was easily going 40 to 50 miles per hour,” said Robert, a 25-year-old cabdriver who declined to give his last name. “It was a loud crash. You could hear the steel of the pole dragging across the street.”
Both robbers were still at large last night and the bicyclist was in critical condition at Bellevue Hospital.
The owner of the Infiniti told investigators he had lent the car to the suspected robber, police sources said.
There are some real savages in this world.
