I am disappointed with these rookie numbers. I count like, $210 and the cards.
Why can’t more blacks at least make their crimes interesting?
Donald Grier of 34-15 12th St., who was caught on video wearing an “I Love NY” shirt, is considered “armed and dangerous,” the 114th Precinct tweeted Monday along with his mugshot.
On July 28, he approached a 27-year-old woman in front of 34-19 33rd St. and made off with $120, according to police.
Almost 24 hours later, the suspect lifted his shirt and displayed a knife in front of a 23-year-old woman at 36th Street near 30th Avenue, before fleeing with $60, the NYPD said.
The attacks turned more violent on July 31, when he allegedly punched a 21-year-old woman in the back of the head at 4:30 a.m. at 43rd Street and 31st Avenue.
He proceeded to choke her before stealing her wallet, containing credit cards and $30 in cash, police said. The victim was treated at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
On Aug. 3, he pushed a 29-year-old woman into the lobby of her building near 43rd Street and 34th Avenue, where he tried unsuccessfully to steal her bag before fleeing, police said.
In the most recent episode, he approached a 28-year-old woman in front of 34-35 29th St. about 12:43 a.m. Aug. 5 while wearing a surgical mask.
He grabbed her from behind and put her in a chokehold before escaping with her pocketbook, which contained several credit cards.
Police describe Grier as black, about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, with black hair and black eyes.
