Elderly man attacked, robbed in Butler Houses elevatorPosted: Updated:
Police are searching for two men that they say assaulted and robbed an elderly Bronx man in the elevator at the Butler Houses yesterday.Cops say the suspects made off with $400 in cash from the victim?s wallet. Porfirio Rodriguez, 69, was taken to the hospital after the attack, but was just released.
Rodriguez and his neighbors say they feel even more scared and upset because there are no surveillance cameras in the building.
He says he put in a request to transfer to another NYCHA building with surveillance cameras, but it's unclear how long he'll have to wait for an approval.
