Knife-wielding duo forces man to withdraw $1,000 at Downtown Brooklyn ATM in brazen robbery: NYPD

Cops are on the lookout for the knife-wielding duo they say robbed a man at a Downtown Brooklyn ATM late last month.

Police are searching for two suspects who forced a man at knifepoint to withdraw $1,000 from a Downtown Brooklyn ATM on Feb. 28.

According to authorities, the 24-year old victim was on Fulton Street at 6:40 p.m. when two yet-to-be-identified men approached him with a knife, demanding his phone.

The victim told police that he refused to hand over his phone, but offered them cash instead out of fear. The men then led the victim at knife-point to a nearby ATM and ordered him to withdraw $1,000.

Cops said they are checking nearby security cameras to identify the men who fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Reported robberies are up a staggering 193% year-to-date in Downtown Brooklyn’s 84th Precinct, according to Police Department data. As of March 3, when the most recent data is available, there were 41 reported robberies so far this year — up from just 14 during the same time in 2023.
