New York police released a surveillance video on Thursday in which a quartet of suspects – two of them wearing surgical masks – walk down a hallway at Hotel Ninety Five in Queens.
Police say the four perpetrators entered the hotel on 95th Street in Queens on Feb. 24 at 6:20 pm, knocked on a door of the suite and attempted to rob a 20-year-old guest.
