A Crown Heights Jewish man reports:
I was walking home after parking my car a block away on Monday night at 1:00am.
When I was a few houses away from my building, two African American teens, around the ages 16 or so, seemingly young and innocent, run over to me and started asking me questions about bus stops etc.
I answered them all the while continuing to walk. They followed me into the building asking more questions about calling to find out about the bus etc. to which I responded.
As I opened the main door of my apartment building with my key, one guy pulled out a gun from his bag and said, “listen boss…”
I was so shocked, not believing what is happening, that I simply screamed out, “no way!”
Luckily, I was just opening the main door so I slipped inside and pulled the door to slam it on him. He pulled back and I gave one more hard pull and managed to slam it shut, locking them out.
They saw it was over and they walked away (in no hurry). It seemed like they wanted to mug me but they were young/amateurs and didn’t know what they were doing.
Lets’ hope publicizing this surveillance camera footage will help identify them.
