Bronx Kidnap Car Used in a Holdup

Emanuel Goldstein a 65-year-old salesman didn’t want to talk about it afterward and nobody can blame him. As he was going into his garage at Co-op City to get his car out yesterday morning, two young men seized him, locked him in the trunk of his car, drove to Yonkers, robbed a bank, crashed into a bridge abutment and fled from the car on foot with the police in pursuit. “I don’t want to talk about it. It was very upsetting.” Detective Rocco Delbenne of the Yonkers police said policemen guarding the car after it crashed and the two bank robbers ran away “were amazed to hear this tapping and find the poor man in the trunk.”
