I95 STREET JOURNAL

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police and the FBI were searching Friday evening for three men who robbed an armored truck guard at gunpoint at a bank in Queens in broad daylight.

Just after noon Friday, a GardaWorld armored truck arrived at the HSBC Bank branch at 82-57 Broadway in Elmhurst, Queens. One of the armed guards went into the bank to make a regularly-scheduled pickup of deposits at the bank, the FBI said.

As the guard was about to leave, he was attacked by the three men at gunpoint in the ATM lobby, the FBI said. The suspects took cash from the guard and sprayed him with a disabling chemical, the FBI said.

The suspects ran off west on Broadway in Queens. They were described as Asian or Hispanic and dressed in heavy winter clothes, the FBI said.

The suspects may have used a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun in the robbery.

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Bronx mom says her daughter doesn’t want to go to school anymore after a teacher insulted and sexually harassed her.

After Kayla got up to throw away some trash, Taktuk allegedly used a vulgar word to describe the size of the girl’s buttocks.

“He’s being disrespectful. He’s being a pervert. And he should be…
