Gun-Toting Robbers Steal Slot Machines From Flushing Apartment: NYPD

Sept. 13, 2019 By Shane O’Brien

Police are looking for four men who held up an illegal gambling operation in a Flushing apartment earlier this week.

The incident took place in the vicinity of Union Street and 35th Avenue at about 4:15 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Police say that the men entered the apartment brandishing a gun at the 27-year-old woman who opened the door.

The men took seven slot machines from the gambling den and fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The men wore hoods and bandanas to partially cover their faces. No arrests have been made in connection with the robbery or the illegal gambling and the investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Maybe undocumented immigrants, who can’t cash out their earnings at real casinos because they have no ID.


That they are. The worst indeed. Just total indifference to crimes right under their noses. I’ve personally had to stop crimes as they drove by and ignored my pleas. Time to lock up the cops in the 109.


It looks like it happened 2-3 blocks away from the 109th Precinct. The 109th is probably the worst or corrupt NYC police precinct. lol
