Default BLACK Parolee busted for scooter-based robberies


Parolee busted for scooter-based robberies

A parolee has been busted for a pair of robberies in which he allegedly rode up to victims on a scooter and snatched their belongs — in one case, dragging an 86-year-old woman along behind his ride when he grabbed her purse, police said Tuesday.

Robert Whitaker, 35, was arrested Friday morning for the scooter-based crimes, cops said.

Shocking footage captured the helmet-wearing crook riding up on an Upper East Side sidewalk at 3 p.m. on May 4 and grabbing the elderly lady’s purse — then speeding away as she held onto the purse and was dragged along the ground.

He got away with $200, a debit card, her identification, keys and purse, police said.

Two days later, he allegedly robbed a 55-year-old man of his keys at 116 W. 139th St. in Harlem before fleeing on a black and red scooter.

The suspect was unidentifiable in photos released by cops because he was wearing a helmet during the crimes.

But the Manhattan Robbery Squad tracked Whitaker on video entering an apartment building and removing the helmet, police sources said.

He was arraigned on the two robbery charges for mugging the elderly woman, court documents show. He was held on $100,000 cash or bond and locked up on Rikers Island.

Whitaker has 11 arrests on his rap sheet, including two for gunpoint robberies, one of those on an MTA bus in 2016 for which he served a three-year stint in prison, the sources said.

He was released in April 2018 and is on parole until 2021.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
