Fifth Squad detectives are investigating a robbery that occurred in Valley Stream on Friday, 10/07/16 at 10:00 P.M.
According to detectives, a female subject, armed with a BB gun, approached a male and female victim, both 15 years of age, while walking in front of 103 Ethel St., pointed the gun at them, then pointed the gun to the ground shooting a round. As the two victims kept walking, they were approached by two additional subjects, armed with a handgun, who threatened to shoot them if they did not hand over their belongings. The male victim complied and handed over his backpack. The female victim refused and moved the handgun that he was pointing at her away from her face. The subject then punched her in the face and took her backpack. The subjects fled into a light colored silver or gray Honda, believed to be an Accord, eastbound on Ethel St. towards Central Ave.
