Yeshiva Zichron Aryeh of Bayswater Dormitory Held Up at Gunpoint


zichron-aryehAt approximately 1:30 this morning, two dark males knocked on the door to the Yeshiva Zichron Aryeh dormitory on Mott Avenue in Bayswater, NY, claiming that they needed to use the phone. They were having “car trouble,” they said.

One of the bochurim answered the door, and the two males forced their way in to the house. They ordered everyone upstairs to the bedrooms and frisked everyone at gunpoint. Those who were sleeping were awoken by the crooks and forced to stand with the others while they went through pockets and dresser drawers. Another bochur went unnoticed by the duo, because he was in the bathroom at the time.

A car, a laptop, a number of cellphones and miscellaneous electronics were stolen. They stuffed pairs of earbuds into their pockets. About three hundred dollars cash was also taken.

The police were called soon after the burglars drove off in a gray Nissan Sentra [NY Plate #EKT3436] which belongs to a bochur from the yeshiva. The eight bochurim who were in the dorm at the time spoke with investigators. If anyone sees the car, call 911.

At the time of this writing, the dorm is closed off as police await the evidence collection team. Nobody is allowed in. Tefillin were removed so that they could be used for Shacahris. The victims, who wish to remain anonymous, are sleeping in other houses for the night.
