Man, 12-year-old Stepdaughter Suspected in Robbery Spree
NEW YORK (AP) _ A man trained his 12-year-old stepdaughter to help him rob elderly people in elevators, police said Sunday.
Stanley Everett, 34, and his stepdaughter, whose name wasn’t released, were arrested Saturday in connection with two April 11 robberies at Lower East Side housing projects. They’re suspected of many more robberies, said Housing Police Lt. Thomas Sbordone.
Everett and his stepdaughter would get on an elevator with an elderly tenant, who ″would be lulled into submission by the fact that he was with a little girl,″ Sbordone said. ″He would grab them by the neck and she would go into their pockets and take their property.″
