We recently reported that Safaree Samuels was robbed at gunpoint in New Jersey on April 2. Now, the video showing the attack surfaced online.
The footage was obtained by TMZ, and you can watch it on their website. The attack was captured by a security camera that was in the parking garage where the robbery took place.
There are two separate men who were approaching Safaree and his friend with their guns drawn.
In the end, Safaree and his buddy are pushed to the ground, and after about 60 seconds, the robbers leave the scene and Safaree gets up quickly and bolts away from the vehicle.
Just after the robbery, Safaree honored his invitation at the Angie Martinez Show where he discussed for the first time about what had happened.
‘Two dudes two guns just ran up on me,’ he said back then.
‘Me, face down on the floor, gun to my head. They just took everything.’
TMZ reported that Safaree later told the police that about $183,000 worth of cash and jewelry had been stolen from him during the attack.
Shawn Harewood and Jonathan Ricketts, are the suspects and the NYPD has captured them.
It seems that Safaree knows Shawn personally, but it was reported that he has not spoken to him in years.
‘This was not some random stick up attempt, this was an ambush specifically targeting Safaree by several men with guns,’ Safaree’s lawyer stated. ‘The facts of what happened are chilling, and it is only by the grace of God that this incident did not have a different ending, and for that, we are extremely grateful.’
