‘Doctors’ Rob Cell Phone Store
By Dan Gesslein
BRONX, NEW YORK (BRONX NEWS)- The old joke that doctors wear masks because they don’t want you to see their faces when they rob you seems to have been taken literally by a pair of cell phone thieves.
Two bandits dressed as surgeons, complete with masks and scrubs, walked into a Castle Hill cell phone store and made off with phones and tablets.
The bizarre incident occurred at around 6:45 p.m. on August 19. The pair walked into a Metro PCS store at 1204 Castle Hill Avenue, dressed as docs, and pushed their way behind the counter.
The men rifled through the cash register and behind the counter making off with $200 in cash, 20 cell phones and six tablet computers.
The suspects are described as black males between the ages of 20 and 25. They wore medical scrubs, white and blue surgical face masks, latex gloves and dark sun glasses.
Anyone with information in either case is urged to call CRIMESTOPPERS at (800) 577-TIPS.
