How to use armed robbery in a sentence?

  1. Brian Chin:

    From a landlord’s perspective, from storeowner’s perspective, we’re terrified of this, his policies and what not. Armed robbery of a store is now a petty larceny? What insanity is this? this guy, his rap sheet is a mile long, he should have been behind bars. Assault? Menacing? How is he out? This is outrageous.

  2. Judge Mindy Glazer:

    Ma’am, you were arrested for burglary with an assault or battery, strong armed robbery with an aggravated battery and child abuse. I will appoint the public defender’s office for you.

  3. Betsy Brantner-Smith:

    Let me just say that New York City has the third-strictest gun laws in the United States. Let's use those gun laws to prosecute, anyone who uses a firearm in the commission of a violent felony, whether it's threatening someone during an armed robbery, during a carjacking, what you know during a domestic dispute, they need to be charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. And while that process is playing out from their arrest to their trial to their conviction, they need to be incarcerated. We encourage the mayor to speak honestly with people about that and encourage bipartisan support for all of that.

  4. Ashan Benedict:

    They may start out using that gun and practice destruction of property, stop sign shootings, vehicle shootings. They may graduate to an armed carjacking or an armed robbery. And then all of a sudden that gun is being discharged and lives are being lost.

  5. Eric Adams:

    No one in this city should be the victim of armed robbery, let alone our faith leaders and congregants worshiping in a House of God, the NYPD is investigating this crime and will work tirelessly to bring the criminals involved to justice.
