ROBBERY – The NYPD is seeking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect wanted for a home invasion robbery in Astoria earlier this year.
On Tuesday, April 7 at 1:10 a.m., two suspects entered an apartment in the vicinity of 31st Avenue and 30th Drive and assaulted the 32-year-old male victim by pistol-whipping him in the face. The suspects then removed an undetermined amount of cash, an iPhone 6 and a wallet containing personal identification. There were no injuries reported as a result of this incident.
The first suspect was caught on July 13 and charged with first-degree robbery, burglary and third-degree assault. He is identified as Adamou Maikarfi, 33, of Manhattan.
The second suspect is a black man, approximately 6 feet, 2 inches tall, 210 lbs. with short black hair and wearing a blue hooded sweater with white stripes along the side of the arms, possibly an Adidas sweater. He is still at large.
