Yesterday, the police released surveillance video images of two men suspected of attacking and robbing a 90-year-old man in his Harlem apartment building earlier this month. The victim, Jesse Little, has been speaking out, discussing the crime, "One of them put an arm around my neck and pulled me to the ground. The other guy took the money from my pocket," and making his feelings known, "I want to put ‘em in jail for life. That’s what I want. I wish I had a gun. I’d blow their brains out."
Little, a former merchant marine who has been living at his West 139th Street building for 50 years, said, "I was coming from the store with some groceries. These two dark-skinned men were in the elevator with me when they mugged me" at 2 p.m. on the sixth floor. The $380 that was stolen "was supposed to go toward my bills... They didn't say anything to me, not one word. It all happened so fast. I didn't even know what was going on. They ran back down the stairs after they took my money."
According to WCBS 2, "The first suspect is described as a black male in his twenties, approximately 5-foot-9 inches tall, wearing a dark colored coat and beige pants. The other suspect is also described as a black male in his 20s, wearing a beige hooded sweatshirt and dark pants." Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers.
