WOODSTOCK, the Bronx — Three men are wanted for using a cinderblock in an attempt to rob two other men in the Bronx last Wednesday, police said.
The incident took place at 3:10 a.m. on Southern Boulevard in Woodstock, when three unidentified men approached a 47-year-old man and a 25-year-old man. One man picked up a piece of cinderblock and threw it at the 25-year-old, striking him in the head before throwing a plastic crate at the 47-year-old man and dropkicking him to the ground.
The two other men started striking the two victims, including with the plastic crates. They then took one victim’s wallet — which contained $450 — before fleeing on foot. The victims were taken to a hospital with head lacerations, as well as bruising to their heads and bodies.
