City Police Department Detective Joseph Kenny previously confirmed that since November 2023, there have been 62 robberies in New York City, 34 of which occurred in Manhattan, and that these robberies are related to a gang of at least 14 people.
The gangs used motorcycles to snatch mobile phones and purses from the victims, most of whom were women. Kenny said most of the robbers lived in shelters and received orders via WhatsApp from their mastermind, Victor Parra, a 30-year-old Venezuelan immigrant who arrived in New York last year. After stealing the phone, criminals would send money to the financial account linked to the mobile phone and use the mobile phone to conduct illegal transactions.
According to foreign media reports, law enforcement officials suspect that such robberies are linked to a Venezuelan gang called Tren de Aragua, or TDA.
