Brazen Bandit Strikes Two Banks Within Ten Minutes In Queens, Police Say

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The search is on Saturday for a bank robber who police say struck twice within a span of ten minutes in Queens. The NYPD released new surveillance images of the man they’re looking for. After coming up short the first time, authorities say the man went right around the corner to try his luck again. The second time, he got what he came for. Cops say the same man robbed two banks within ten minutes Friday in Forest Hills. (credit: NYPD) Surveillance images from inside Queens County Savings Bank on Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills shows the suspect — clad in a bright blue t-shirt — allegedly walking up to the teller’s counter around 9:35 Friday morning and passing the 64-year-old teller a note demanding money. The woman refused to hand over a cent and the man left. Just ten minutes later, surveillance images from inside a Capital One Bank right around the corner on 71st Avenue captures the same same suspect — in the same blue t-shirt — with the same alleged routine. Cops say he once again walked up to the teller’s counter and passed the 24-year-old woman demanding money. This time, the teller complied and the brazen bandit walked out with $214. Some locals were relieved it wasn’t their bank he decided to target. “I’m pretty glad he skipped the bank I go to,” Forest Hills resident Matthew Cladcutt tells CBS2’s Ali Bauman. “I stop by usually, believe it or not, Friday mornings.” Many say the neighborhood typically feels safe, especially around rush hour — when the thief struck. “It concerns you for the safety of people who work in the bank and people going around here,” resident Jeff Smith said. The robbery has some bank customers double checking their accounts. “It’s unfortunate it happened here with so many people constantly,” resident Michael Suarez said, “and I hope my money’s safe.” Investigators say the suspect is believed to be about 5’1″ and 150 pounds. Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74682).

Police Call Death Of 12-Year-Old Boy During Sailing Lesson On LI An Accident

CENTERPORT, N.TY. (CBSNewYork) — Police investigating the death of a 12-year-old boy are calling it a “tragic accident” after he was killed during a sailing lesson on Long Island. It happened Tuesday at the Centerport Yacht Club in Suffolk County. At around 3 p.m., the boy and two other children were doing a “man overboard drill” in the waters of Northport Harbor, practicing what to do when a sailboat capsizes. All of them were wearing life jackets. Two of the children returned on to the sailboat, but police said an 18-year-old instructor pulled the boy into a Zodiac inflatable boat equipped with an outboard motor. Police said while on the ride back to shore, the boy fell out and was struck by the boat’s propeller. “He became entangled in the propeller, causing massive injuries to the chest,” Sgt. James Scimone said. The instructor pulled the boy back into the boat and performed CPR until EMTs arrived. The boy was rushed to Huntington Hospital, where he died. Police say no one was at fault. “We are investigating this thing strictly as an accident,” Scimone said. Meanwhile, the community and the 18-year-old instructor are now distraught. “He’s in shock, he’s very upset, his family is with him,” Sgt. James Scimone said. Another instructor who also tried to perform CPR on the boy was also taken to the hospital for shock. The name of the boy has not been released. Read More »

CBS2 Exclusive: Heartbroken Children Of Slain Officer Face Life Without Their Mother

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — They lost their mother in a moment of violence. Now, as the spotlight on a fallen officer fades, her children are left to move ahead without her. As New York was coming to grips with the senseless death of Detective Miosotis Familia — gunned down while sitting in her police vehicle in the Bronx — it was her children who brought the most comfort to the city. GALLERY: Funeral Held For NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia CBS2’s Kristine Johnson spoke exclusively with Familia’s three eloquent children, who have so much more they want New Yorkers to know about their mother, the hero in blue. “Everything she does, she does it for a reason,” Peter said. Still speaking of their mother in the present tense; Peter, Delilah, and Genesis said they expect their mother, Miosotis Familia to come walking through the door at any moment. “It doesn’t feel normal. I can’t go back to what I was doing because it just doesn’t feel right. It doesn’t feel real,” Genesis said. Familia’s children were well aware of the risks involved with their mother’s job. “I used to watch the news with her, so that’s when I realized there’s protests and she would be handling things like that,” Delilah said. Nothing, they say could have prepared them for the tragedy that would begin to unfold in the early morning hours of July 5. “I was woken up at 2:30 in the morning and I was told she got hurt,” Genesis said. “I see a cop telling Genesis she was in an accident. I just thought at first, you know, it was a car accident,” Peter recalled. Wanting to know more, he went online. “I searched it up and said how she was in critical condition, and that she was shot, and I was like shot? That’s crazy, but it said she was in critical condition, so I would think she was fine,” he said. Hours earlier, the family celebrated the 4th of July together. “We were with my aunt Mercedes. It was really fun. We had hot dogs, burgers, and we went in the pool. My mom was chilling in this chair,” Peter said. It was on holidays, the kids say, that their mother was in her glory — Valentine’s Day was her favorite. “She would go all out. I remember last Valentine’s Day she got like Pizza Hut and it was crazy, I think we had donuts,” he added. “It was a heart shaped pizza,” Genesis said, “It was really nice. I was always looking forward to the holidays with my mom. Actually at Christmas she dressed up as an elf, in an elf onesie.” Also remembered will be her cooking. “I used to love it when she made like salmon. It’s just delicious,” Peter said. Delilah preferred her pineapple chicken. “That was like the best thing she ever made,” she said. Familia’s kids said friends found it ‘cool’ that their mother was a cop — a cop on one of the toughest posts in the city. “My mom knew how to, she knew how to sort of mend that tense relationship, that broken relationship between the police and the rest of the community,” Genesis said. That’s what makes her death so hard to accept. “My mom was assassinated for wearing a uniform, and that a person that targeted her didn’t even think that she might have had a family or people that she cared about, or people that she needed to go home to,” Genesis said. Now, the children she should have gone home to cling to each other, too afraid to let go. “Somebody’s life was taken senselessly and look what it has done. Look at the lives that it has changed, and our foundation wants to be there for these families because you can’t undo it, but you can help carry them, and be there with them,” Frank Siller said. Siller, who started the Siller Foundation in honor of his brother Stephen — killed on September 11 — now wants to help ease the family’s burden, like he’s done with so many others who have died in the line of duty. “We fell it’s very, very important that the community says ‘thank you for your sacrifice, and here we’re gonna help you financially,” Siller said. The foundation has raised over $300,000 so far, a drop in the bucket, Siller said, for a lifetime of needs. “We want to be able to raise a large sum of money to put on the side for them, so they can have the quality of life that their mom went to work everyday to make sure they have a very good quality of life,” he said. The Familia children say they will always be grateful for the life their mother gave them. “I will always be grateful for her because she was a single mom, and she had three kids, and she would put all of her work into us to help us enjoy our lives. She made it happen, I enjoyed my life,” Peter said. The family is still sorting out who will take care of the twins — Peter and Delilah. Genesis said her mother would have wanted her to go back to college in September so she could graduate at the end of the year. The Tunnel2Towers Foundation is still accepting donations on its tunnel2towers.org web site, or toll-free via phone at 844-BRAVEST. Read More »

Police say her daughter’s boyfriend found her and called 911. Police sources said Mulzac had numerous electrical cords tied around her legs and ankles, and fabric wrapped around her neck, 1010 WINS’ Holli Haerr reported. “She was a nice, hard working lady.
