Bronx Crime Watch: Granny Robbery Suspect Caught

The man police say spent three weeks in April and May terrorizing and brutally robbing elderly Bronx women in the 48th and 52nd precincts has been arrested, according to Deputy Inspector Joseph Dowling, the commanding officer of the 52nd Precinct.

Yesterday afternoon, we published a mug shot of Tyrone Rosario, 40, an ex-con who has  previously spent time in prison for robbery and attempted robbery, according to the NY Post. Police said Rosario was wanted in connection with six robberies of women between the ages 65 and 81. The robberies happened between April 23 and May 9 in various parts of the 48th and 52n precincts. (It's unclear exactly where in the precincts they happened.)

Reached briefly on the phone today, Dowling said they caught their suspect last night. We'll have more details when we get them.

  1. I hope he is convicted to the fullest extent of the law. Not only did he violate the never disrespect your elders he preyed upon them robbed them like an animal. They too are on fixed incomes as well. Now days it takes a lot for the elderly to even walk the streets and be comfortable. I hope with this clown locked up they can breathe a little easier and I hope his cell mate tunes him up every night he's incarcerated
