Mercedes Rams Toyota 20000 dollars looted
A violent car chase ended in an armed robbery on the streets of New York City on Saturday afternoon. It looked like a scene from Vin Diesel’s Fast & Furious series or a leaked screenshot from Rockstar’s highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6). Except, it wasn’t.
The thief rammed his black Mercedes into a Toyota RAV4 and then stole it with a bag of cash from its driver on the Upper East Side. The New York Post, citing law enforcement sources, reported that he stole $20,000 in cash.
The dramatic videos, captured by onlookers, show the black Mercedes deliberately crashing into the silver SUV and spinning into another lane of traffic as the sound of screeching tires fills the scene. He smashed a Toyota again, and I forced it onto the curb. The next frame shows a man with a gun getting out of the sedan.

The man, who was wearing a gray T-shirt and black pants, slammed into the SUV’s passenger window. Then he was seen jumping into the Mercedes with a black suitcase.
The chaos shocked the pedestrians as one was seen jumping in search of shelter. “He’s got a gun! He’s got a gun!” A spectator can be heard screaming in one of the videos.
A police spokesman told The Independent: “The suspect fled the scene of the car.” There are no arrests and the investigation is underway.”
