Tyrone Hunter, who terrorized three Upper East Side women in a creepy 2010 crime spree, will spend anywhere from 18 years to the rest of his life in prison, the Manhattan District Attorney announced today.
Indeed, the deets of Hunter's crimes are chilling, and it's a good thing he's going to be behind bars for a long time.
Here's what he did: Hunter accosted a woman in the hall of her apartment building on East 69th Street on Nov. 24, 2010, around1:15 p.m. He forced her into her apartment, made her undress, blindfolded her, and then stole her jewelry, TV, and laptop.
Around 9 p.m. that same day, he followed another woman into her building on East 83rd Street. He placed his hand over her mouth and demanded cash.More »
On Jan. 12, one of the suspected perps (pictured here) followed a 58-year-old man into an elevator at 71-57 161st Street. Cops say he whacked the victim on the head and stole his money.
Cops are on the lookout for a man wearing a Scarface jacket (no, really), and say that he and another man recently robbed a Bronx newsstand at gunpoint.
Around 7:15 p.m. on Jan. 6, the two suspected perps entered the shop at 1936 Crotona Avenue, and pulled out black handguns. The suspects, pictured here, took cash from the register and scratch-off lotto tickets, law enforcement officials say. They fled on foot.
According to police statistics, crime rates in New York didn't change overall in 2011 compared to 2012. Overall crime decreased by 0.8 percent through December 18 compared with the same period a year ago. There have been 102,445 felonies so far compared with 102,269 by the same time last year.
