Four men are wanted in connection with two attacks at the Butler Houses in the Bronx. On April 3, the group attacked a 45-year-old man in front of a building around 11 p.m.; they also robbed him. Then, on April 18, they struck again at 2:30 a.m.—and the assault was caught on camera. WABC 7 reports, "Police said two men were assaulted as they entered the building. A 43-year-old victim was struck in the head with a bottle, pushed into an elevator and robbed. He needed stitches to his head. The other victim, a 46-year-old man, was pushed to the ground in the hallway and robbed." One suspect has been identified as Tyrone Hines; police are asking people with additional information about him and the other suspects to contact CrimeStoppers (800-577-TIPS or online).
