Police: 3 Suspects Sought In Coney Island Robbery

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are trying to identify three suspects who they said attacked and robbed a man on Coney Island.

It happened back on June 15 inside a building in the area of Surf Avenue and West 33rd Street.

Police said the suspects were following a 66-year-old man when one of them punched the man in the head while another tried to take his cell phone from his waistband. The third suspect then tried to take items out of the man’s pockets, police said.

The victim fought off the men and the three fled empty-handed, police said.

The suspects were seen on surveillance video.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

OPA Has Designed a Conceptual Cliffside Home on the Aegean Sea

Could you imagine a house being built into a cliff overlooking the ocean? Well, OPA (Open Platform for Architecture) have come up with an incredible conceptual home residing cliffside on the Aegean Sea.

The Casa Brutale is a focus on aesthetics, structure and engineering, as it is surrounded on three sides by utter earth. The fourth side boasts a wall entire made of glass, awarding with a magnificent view of the sea. The structure has been constructed from wood, concrete and reinforced glass, with nothing extending above ground level.

To enter the house, you must travel down fifty stairs, then making your way into the open living area. The interior of the home is fairly minimal, but when you have views as such — oh, and an insane rooftop pool — that indeed spices things up a bit. Due to the roof being made of glass, natural light brightens the residence to perfection. Very little furniture is featured in the house, again to focus on the natural beauty of the home and its surrounding landscape.

Yankees Strike Deal with Fan Who Caught Alex Rodriguez’s 3,000th Hit

When New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez launched a home run into the seats at Yankee Stadium for his 3,000th career hit in June, it seemed as though he would never get the ball back, but the dynamic changed Friday as the Yanks negotiated a deal with the fan who caught it.

According to the Yankees’ official Twitter account, Zack Hample, who is well-known for his pursuit of souvenir baseballs, has agreed to present A-Rod with the ball Friday in exchange for a $150,000 donation to the Pitch In for Baseball charity.

Hample will receive some additional non-monetary compensation as well, per ESPN’s Darren Rovell:

The decision to give the ball to the 39-year-old designated hitter represents a significant change of heart of Hample’s part as he initially planned to keep it:

Hample did concede that the ball might become available if he received an offer to his liking, though, according to ESPN.com:

I think that someone like Derek Jeter or Alex Rodriguez, who has made half a billion dollars in his career, doesn’t really need a favor from a normal civilian and a fan like me. I don’t know right now if I’m going to sell it. I mean, depending on what the Yankees could offer, I would consider giving it back. I’m not giving it back for—I don’t plan to give it back for a chance to meet him and full autographed bats because I don’t collect bats, I collect baseballs. Just having this ball is so meaningful to me. I can’t believe that I got it.

While Hample will ultimately benefit from the exchange, the fact that a charity is involved makes it a much more meaningful and fulfilling transaction than most probably expected.

Also, the Yankees’ decision to go to bat for A-Rod is significant since it wasn’t long ago that the two sides had an extremely tenuous relationship due to his year-long suspension for the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Things have changed this season as Rodriguez has carried himself in an ideal manner, and he has also produced on the field to the tune of a .280 batting average, 15 home runs and 45 RBI for the AL East-leading Bronx Bombers.

A-Rod’s reputation remains tarnished as far as the sport of baseball is concerned, but this gesture suggests that he is once again back in the Big Apple’s good graces.
