Man Who Shot Worker During Botched Robbery on Skillman Avenue Has Been Arrested: NYPD

Suspect wanted for Sunnyside Pharmacy Shooting (NYPD)

May 26, 2019 By Christian Murray

Police have arrested the man wanted for shooting a worker at a Skillman Avenue drug store last month.

Gianne Peralta, 36, from New Jersey, was arrested on May 15 and charged with attempted robbery in the first degree and two counts of assault, according to police.

Police received a tip that Peralta was the perpetrator and then made an arrest at the 108 Precinct after questioning him, according to sources.

Peralta allegedly walked into Sunnyside Pharmacy, located at 48-11 Skillman Ave., at around 1:55 p.m. on April 18 and pulled out a firearm and demanded money.

He then shot a worker in the shoulder before fleeing the store empty handed.

NY is a sanctuary city and illegals can’t be touched and if they are it is only to be caught and released in you guessed it in another sanctuary city. The tipping point has come in SUNNYSIDE and you will now see what happens when the true country loving citizens become reactive and aggressive on ridding these wanna be community activists that believe there word goes and that the great OZ has spoken …. We all know that story too and it’s some pencil neck old world immigrated moron who becomes a U.S college grad and believes they know everything about everything and the only thing he knows is to cook for his wife daily and be a servant and to do all the motherly deeds because they chose to role reverse because he is not manly enough to be what he should really be because of liberalism. Live and learn

They just want to blend in m

Why are people from the Bronx trying to buy new cars with fake licenses? Why did that mother from New Mexico smuggle her daughter on a plane and end up HERE???

Good Work by Police

Good work by the police. I hope he gets the maximum prison time. More than likely he’s in the country illegally.

I'm not sure how a New Jersey resident is in the country illegally

Is there a shred of evidence to support that, or just more Trump Lover racist speculation?d

It's not just a NYC thing.

You can live in other states and not be here legally. You know that, right?

Congrats to 108th and thanks to whoever tipped them off. There was no way they could catch him the way precincts communicate with each other (or lack of) between states. What the hell was he doing in Sunnyside? Seek connections, it will lead to more arrests!

As for charges, Should be Attempted Murder among many others. What about weapons possession? What about civil suits?

Sunnyside is being advertised as this diverse tolerant open boarders community these days and its NOT EVEN CLOSE. All this promotional garbage from these ethnic promoters under the train who take advantage of everything under the sun which has been confirmed HAS TO STOP…. Our leaders are selling out our community by creating this utopia for all and then to only make plopping up 7 more shelters seem like business as usual. The great deception has begun and crime rates are off the charts. Before Sunnyside becomes the main hub for community shelters in all of NY let’s put an end of gentrification and NOT HERE NOT EVER!!!!!

Thank your police for capturing this dangerous POS. He should have been charged with attempted murder, for shooting that gun.

He’ll probably be out in 3 months, wreaking havoc again.

Why not follow up and find out what happens to him, or better yet go to court and tell them. Let us know. I doubt he will be out in 3 months. If he is, there is seriously something wrong.

Do you mean liberal cities like London, Toronto, Sydney and Edinburgh? All liberal cities with much lower crime rates than any US city, liberal or conservative.

Interesting… London and Sydney are both hardballs in their police departments. So you can be liberal but also orderly and keep everyone in order. This is something dumblazzio has forgotten about politics and being a father figure to a city.
