Police Release PHOTO of One of the Suspects Wanted For Beating and Robbing 81-Year-Old


Suspect (NYPD)

Nov. 19, 2014 By Christian Murray

The police have released another photo of one of the two men suspected of beating and robbing an 81-year-old Sunnysider at the Chase Bank branch at 46-10 Queens Blvd last month.

The two men allegedly approached the victim inside the Chase bank ATM area at about 9:30 am on Sunday, October 26, before punching him in the face and removing $100 and his debit card from his pocket. The victim was William Eichhorn, who has lived in the Phipps Houses for the past 50 years.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)

Why have they picked this neighborhood? Wasn’t the Sunnyside Gardens burglar from about a year ago also from the Bronx? Also, the guy who was robbing and taking people to ATMs (and was caught about two years ago) was also from the Bronx.

The 108 detectives told my grandfather the suspects are believed to be from the Bronx. Although not from our neighborhood, I believe it is important we continue to pursue them. They deserve to be punished for their heinous actions and must be deterred from continuing this pattern of behavior.


Was this photo enhanced from the absurdly poor quality Chase video ? Better than the original pics but I would hope the NYPD has better photo enhancement technology than my 3 year old cell phone. Also, why does it take close to 3 weeks to
get this pic out to the public ?
Very disappointed in both the multi-billion dollar bank and what should be a world class law enforcement department.

Is that from GameStop accross the street? Why are all these cameras so damn bad? The last picture looks like someone took a blurry picture of a Neanderthal at museum of natural history. First picture looks like a black-Zorro from one of those mock comedy films. Let’s not waste time trying to catch these low lifes because these characters are not from our neighborhood and they are never coming back, just like that piece of sh*t coward who robbed the woman in that building. Once again, if anyone looks like they don’t belong in our neighborhood, they probably do not.


No, it is not. I also want to say that I noticed a lot of suspicious men sitting in their cars on Greenpoint Avenue between 43rd Avenue and 46th Street. They seem to be casing the Avenue. Everyone should be on the lookout, as this is the Holiday Season. I went into one of the banks in the neighborhood late morning and a man came in behind me with no apparent need to do some banking. So, again, everyone should be careful for it seems as if their are a lot of predators in the neighborhood.


Is this one of those magic eye photos where you have to look *through* the picture and relax your eyes and, if you’re lucky, the real image will appear?
