BX robberies up 8 percent from last year

(08/23/10) THE BRONX - Statistics from the NYPD show that robberies have increased in the Bronx by eight percent since this time last year.

News 12 The Bronx spoke with several shop owners in the borough, many who say they have been robbed before. One shop owner said he believes the men who robbed his store also robbed a few of his neighbors and that he is disappointed the NYPD has not been able to do more.

The man said his security cameras caught excellent images of the men who robbed him, but police have not yet been able to identify them. The owner says the new robbery statistic worries him.

He said if the NYPD isn't able to bring the number of robberies down, he may have to pack up and move his business to another borough.
