Shootings, burglaries and auto theft surging in NYCHA complexes during lockdown

Shootings, burglaries and auto thefts at New York’s public housing complexes have skyrocketed during the coronavirus lockdown.

Auto thefts surged 38% in the four weeks ending May 10, and shootings and burglaries each increased 17%.

But the other five serious crime categories — murder, rape, robbery, grand larceny and felony assault — held steady or fell, and the total number of serious crimes in the NYCHA network plummeted nearly a third.

The NYPD has logged 55 shootings in the projects so far this year, compared with 50 reported in the same period in 2019 — a 10% uptick.

The James Weldon Johnson Houses and and King Towers, located three blocks apart in Harlem, had no shootings last year but each already had two through May 10.

In one of the shootings at the Johnson Houses, Richard Robayo, 44, was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head Feb. 19. The NYPD is still looking for the killer.

An NYPD source previously told The Post that the department attributed rising auto thefts — a 63% citywide increase — to bail reforms enacted this year that reduce the penalty for stealing cars to a “desk appearance ticket.”

NYCHA has seen a 5% percent increase in robberies so far this year, compared to 10% across the city.

One mugging involved a pizza delivery driver, 21, outside of East New York’s Pink Houses in February. The man was run over by a car when the two attackers knocked him to the ground in a a struggle over a pizza.
