Police nail armed robbery suspect in Brooklyn Heights parking garage
Police blocked off suspect from exit at Cadman Plaza West
A rapid police response following an armed robbery in Brooklyn Bridge Park Tuesday night resulted in the capture of one of the suspects in a parking garage on Cadman Plaza West in Brooklyn Heights.
While the details have yet to be confirmed by NYPD, what is known so far is that at roughly 10:45 p.m. several men, at least one armed, allegedly held up a person or persons walking through the park. The perpetrators then split up, with one of them leaving the park. This suspect ran into the underground parking garage at a residential tower located at 200 Cadman Plaza West.
Police from the 84th Precinct, along with numerous other NYPD vehicles and ambulances, converged at the entrance to the parking garage and at various other locations around the park. Cops entered the garage and rapidly apprehended the suspect, cuffed him and put him into a police car.
“They nailed him and brought him right out,” a building employee said.
