Bronx News Roundup for July 31

Richard Izquierdo, grandson of Bronx Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo, and Margarita Villegas, another employee of the nonprofit organization they run, face new charges claiming they misused funds from SBCC Management Corp. to pay for Arroyo's interns and a political club. This comes after earlier charges that they used funds to fly Arroyo to Puerto Rico and go on shopping sprees.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. presented a proclamation to members of the Bronx Community Pride Center for celebrating Bronx Pride Day and working to support the LGBT community in the Bronx. Diaz's office says he aims to make sure there is equal access to services and LGBT organizations receive equal funding for projects--standing in stark contrast to his father (who does not generally support gay rights). Watch a video of his comments here.

Two men from the Bronx were pursued all the way from Bergen County to the Bronx after a bank robbery last night.

New residents are praising their recently moved-in Bronx homes as real estate brokers say apartment sales have increased in this borough despite downturns in the housing market.
