Police: 1 suspect still at large for Sunset Park apartment robbery

Posted: Updated:

One man is in custody but another is still at large for an apartment robbery in Sunset Park, police say. 

News 12 is told the incident happened on Dec. 18 when the two suspects forced open a bedroom window to get inside. One of the suspects then took out a gun and demanded a 69-year-old woman and 71-year-old man to hand over money and their property.

The victims tried to fight back but the woman ended up losing two teeth and the suspects got away with $2,000 and an iPhone.

The second victim was unharmed while the woman was treated at the hospital.

Jamie Ronan, 32, who lives just a few blocks away, has been arrested and charged with robbery, assault and criminal trespassing.

Investigators say video evidence shows the second suspect they are still looking for.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
