“He’s Got a Gun!”: $20,000 Midtown New York City Chase – HuffPost

A car chase in New York’s Upper East Side neighborhood that went viral on social media was aimed at stealing $20,000, police sources told the local press on Sunday. In the video, which was recorded by a passer-by on Saturday, it is seen how a Mercedes chases a Toyota until it steals a black backpack, in which, according to what the Police told the New York Post, there was 20,000 dollars. In the images it is seen how the vehicles go in the opposite direction and after colliding they continue the persecution along the sidewalk until the black Mercedes manages, by means of a blow, to paralyze the other vehicle. Once the two vehicles are stopped, as can be seen in the video, a man gets out of the Mercedes and begins to hit the window of the Toyota. “He has a gun, he has a gun,” one of the witnesses is heard shouting. According to the Police, the armed assailant managed to steal $20,000 from the Toyota. Both abandoned their vehicle a few blocks from the incident and there were no injuries. The whereabouts or identity of the thieves is not yet known.
