HIALEAH, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police have released the surveillance video after four armed men attacked and robbed a South Florida man for his gold chain.
Hialeah Police is asking for the public's help in identifying four men who they say are armed and dangerous. "You see the three subjects jump out of their car. You see where the getaway driver makes a u-turn, prepares their vehicle for their fast getaway," said Hialeah Police Department Sgt. Eddie Rodriguez. "You see how they come up behind the victim. They surprise him and at gun point, they take his chain"
Surveillance video shows the victim pulling up to a body shop located on 395 East 10th Avenue in Hialeah. The four men come from behind and according to police, the victim was pistol whipped out of the cameras range.
Police have identified one of the three men involved in the robbery. "We've been able to identify one out of the four subjects, Allan Taron Hamilton 17 years old," said Rodriguez. "If you know who he is or who he hangs out with, we ask to please call us and give us their information."
On June 21, a 70-year-old woman was hospitalized after robbers shot her in the hand and stole her gold chain near a school on Northwest 19th Avenue and 127th Street in Northwest Miami-Dade. Police said the robbers took off in a red mini van.
Police said the four men drove off in a 2013 black Ford Escape with tinted windows.
