On Saturday, November 13 at about 8:58am, an individual got on an M10 bus in front of 200 Central Park West (the AMNH) and threatened to kill the bus driver. He then “simulated a firearm and fled the bus to parts unknown,” an NYPD representative tells us.
The NYPD announced on November 20, one week after the incident, that it’s now seeking assistance from the public in identifying the suspect – who is wanted for “Menacing in front of 200 Central Park West.” Here’s a surveillance video of the individual in question.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
A reward of up to $3,500 is being offered to anyone who has a tip which helps lead the NYPD to the suspect’s arrest.
All calls are strictly confidential.
I’m starting to see a pattern every time a crime is committed and they’re looking for a suspect on here. It is literally a black male 100% of the time. And this particular individual, like so many on here, is well dressed, and well groomed, etc. In this particular case, I’m not even sure what happened? It’s being reported that he threatened to kill a bus driver when he got on the bus, but it’s not clear if he revealed (or brandished) a firearm, or simply stated that he had one. I can already hear all the liberal comments about him not actually having hurt anyone. And how certain lives matter more than others. The police are enjoying this, they are no longer doing anything to earn their paycheck. And it is extremely clear that the crime rate is soaring on a daily basis. I grew up on the upper West side, I went to public school PS 84 in the 70s, and Joan of arc junior high school in the 80s. I played basketball after school with lots of black friends and school mates. I still have friends from all of the housing projects in the neighborhood. I should not be called a racist just because I want the police to arrest anyone committing a crime. It’s their job, this is a city that requires immediate and constant law enforcement. For those people saying we should not let a few bad apples paint everyone in the Black Lives Matter movement, well then we should not let a couple of cops paint all of the police that way. A lot of NYPD are women and POC.
