NYC armed robbery crew tied to at least 4 carjackings involving staged fender-benders

The NYPD is hunting for armed criminals who have been linked to at least four carjackings in Brooklyn and Queens over the past month involving staged fender-benders.

Police released surveillance video Wednesday from the latest incident, which took place at 12:30 pm on Oct. 27 at the intersection of Atlantic Ave. and Hendrix Street in Brooklyn.

According to the cops, a 40-year-old man was driving a 2017 gray BMW when a black sedan deliberately rear-ended his vehicle, as seen in the newly released footage.

As soon as the BMW driver stepped out of the car, he was confronted by men dressed in all black who threatened him with a gun before fleeing in the two cars. The victim was not injured.

The first carjacking attributed to this crew took place just before 5 am on Oct. 15 at the intersection of 194th St. and 112th Ave. in the St. Albans section of Queens. A 27-year-old man was driving a 2013 gray Ford when a white Toyota, following closely behind, rear-ended his car, police said.
