An "old" man described as being a nice guy always had a bible in his hand. Little did he know that one day a thug would attack him and then steal his bible.
It happened after a man waited for him to go into his apartment near midnight.
There is a reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect. Here is a zoomed in picture.
In a truly disturbing crime, a heartless thug robbed a 92-year-old man of his Bible and glasses in Chelsea Monday night.
Ricardo Velez has lived in his apartment at West 18th Street for over 50 years. Neighbors describe Velez as a nice guy that always keeps to himself.
They also say Velez always has his Bible in his hand.
Police say the creep seen walking back in forth in the surveillance footage followed Velez into his apartment at about 11:30 p.m. Monday, pushed him to the ground and took off with a bag.
