The first robbery occurred on April 25 at 1 a.m. when three men entered Fordham Market on Fordham Road with guns out and stole items worth about $200 before fleeing the scene in a black SUV, cops said.

Less than an hour later, three men entered a Fordham Market on East Fordham Road with their guns drawn and stole about $900 from the register and about $900 in merchandise before leaving in a vehicle, officials said.

Later that same day, just before 2:40 a.m., two men entered the Grab & Go deli on 164th Street and Broadway with a gun. They stole $200 from the register and fled the scene in a dark-colored vehicle, authorities said.

The next week, a 32-year-old man was leaving a Bank of America on White Plains Road at 3 a.m. when he was approached by a man with a gun demanding money. The victim was able to get away from the robber who fled the scene empty handed, police said.

About 10 minutes later, a 20-year-old victim was sitting in his parked car outside of 1000 Pelham Parkway when two men with guns approached him and told him to step out of the car. Once outside, the men stole the victim’s iPhone 12, cops said.

No injuries were reported as a result of any of the incidents.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
