Starbucks on Delancey Street Robbed at Knifepoint Days Before Knifing outside its Doors
Coronavirus can’t curb crime on the Lower East Side. There were two knifepoint robberies last week in as many days, in and outside the Starbucks on Delancey Street.
The first incident happened inside the coffee shop last Thursday (March 19) at noon. A robber took unspecified loot, and threatened an employee with a knife in the process. No injuries reported.
Less than two days later (March 21), five hooligans stabbed a pedestrian who was walking to the northbound M15 bus stop at Allen and Delancey Streets. The five assailants attacked the victim at 2:10am Saturday morning, delivering stab wounds in the left torso and back.
Cops said the victim was highly intoxicated and was transported to Bellevue for further treatment.
They also believe different perps are behind both incidents.
