First Squad detectives are investigating an incident that occurred on Sunday, April 26, 2020 at 5:15 pm in Freeport.
According to detectives, a 34 year old female, while driving for Uber, was stopped at the intersection of South Long Beach Avenue and Porterfield Place by a black 4 door sedan with a push bar on the front of the vehicle and flashing blue and white lights. The vehicle was operated by two unknown males that activated a police siren to pull the victim over.
The two males exited their vehicle and approached the victim. The operator of the vehicle is described as a male Hispanic, 5'8" tall, 20-30 years old, 180 pounds, with a mustache and earrings in both ears. He was wearing a white tee shirt and jeans, with a snake tattoo on his neck and a dragon tattoo on his right arm. The second subject is described as a male black, 5'7" tall, 20-30 years old, 140 pounds, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and black sneakers.
The Hispanic male subject identified himself as an undercover detective and instructed the victim to exit her vehicle. As the victim was exiting her vehicle, the Hispanic male subject closed the driver’s side door on her hand causing a laceration and substantial pain. The subject then removed an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim’s pockets and both subjects fled north on South Long Beach Avenue. The investigation is ongoing.
Detectives request anyone with information regarding this incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
