Christian Torres, a 45-year-old man, is currently facing charges of first-degree robbery and assault of a person older than 65. These charges stem from an alleged attack that occurred in Manhattan on a 91-year-old man.
During a routine patrol of the subway station at the 116th St station and Lexington Avenue in East Harlem, detectives spotted the suspect and immediately identified him. At the time of his arrest, authorities discovered that he was carrying drugs.
While heading home from the grocery store, Hyman Silerglad found himself being targeted for his wallet.
The incident took place on February 1, around 10:30 p.m., on East 86th Street between First and Second avenues.
According to James Silverglad, the son of the victim, the man who approached them claimed to be from Coney Island and assured them that he had no intention of taking their wallet.
During the incident, Silverglad, a retired attorney, successfully thwarted the would-be robber’s plans and managed to retain possession of his wallet.
