Woman Robbed at Gunpoint in Early-Morning Incident

A woman was robbed at gunpoint early this morning.

Chilling screams were heard near East 12th Street and Avenue A around 3 a.m.

The commanding officer of the Ninth Precinct, Deputy Inspector John Cappelmann, confirmed that a woman was held up at gunpoint by three men.

Though neighbors were awakened to a cry of “rape,” no formal allegations of sexual assault were made, said Deputy Inspector Cappelmann. The victim was sobbing as she told officers who responded to the incident, “I have nothing; he took everything.” She was unable to give a detailed description of her attackers, according to the commanding officer. No arrests have been made in the case.
