Two muggings occurred on Friday night in Crown Heights, by three males carrying a knife.
The three young males first mugged a white male at knife point, as the victim was waiting for the bus on President Street and New York Avenue.
The three males then attempted to rob a Jewish male one block away on President Street and Brooklyn Avenue at knife point.
The Jewish male explained it was Shabbos, so he was carrying no possessions, and the perps fled the location.
With the help of the Jewish victim’s family and the volunteer safety patrol, police were able to apprehend one of the perps. Police discovered a few knives in his possession.
The mugger is 14 and has had prior contacts with the police.
The perp was arrested and taken to family court today.
The detective unit is working on locating the two outstanding perps, police said.
