So many crime stories end with the words, “The investigation is ongoing.”
So it was with the story about Lincoln Convenience, at 2047 Broadway between 70th and 71st Streets, which was robbed twice in three days last August. During the second robbery, a friend of the store clerk tried to intervene and was shot in the left foot.
For the doubters among us, all these months later, the investigation paid off. The NYPD announced on Monday that, “pursuant to an ongoing investigation,” a third suspect in that incident — the shooter — Timothy Yahdullahi, 23, of the Bronx, was arrested and charged with Attempted Murder, Robbery, Criminal Use of a Firearm, Criminal Possession of a Weapon, and Reckless Endangerment.
Yahdullahi’s arrest was preceded by the arrests of Tyrone Rodriguez, 27, in September, and Daequan Turner, 19, in October, also from the Bronx, both on charges of Robbery.
According to the original story, four perpetrators stole an “undetermined amount of CBD oil and cash from Lincoln Convenience, and fled.” One perp may still be at large.
The investigation is ongoing.
