    OAKLAND — A midday purse-snatch robbery that ended with a victim dragged along a block of International Boulevard was under investigation, authorities said Thursday. At 12:05 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to the 800 block of International for an incident, and learned that a strong-arm robbery had happened. According to sources, a victim identified only as an Asian American woman in her sixties was standing on a sidewalk in the 800 block of International after shopping at a beauty-supply store a block east when a man got out of a white Toyota Camry and grabbed her purse.

The Toyota dragged the woman into the 900 block of International near the beauty-supply store she had recently visited before the woman finally let go of the purse, which contained her ID, credit...
    Four men are wanted by investigators in Westchester County after threatening to kill a gas station clerk during an armed robbery overnight, police said. Shortly before 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24, officers from the New Rochelle Police Department responded to Sunoco on Huguenot Street, where there was a report of an armed robbery. New Rochelle Police Capt. Cosmo Costa said that the investigation into the robbery determined that four African American men entered the Sunoco store, walked behind the counter and demanded money from an employee. Costa said that one of the four men then pointed to the cash register and said “give me the money or I’ll kill you” at which point the register was opened and approximately $200 was taken out. The four suspects then fled north on River Street in a great four-door sedan. Police said that the investigation into the robbery is ongoing. Anyone with...

    Yankees Rumors: One strong-armed relief pitcher Cashman can land on a cost-efficient deal By: Alexander Wilson January 27, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees aren’t done making moves, despite general manager Brian Cashman going on a spending spree the past few days to acquire starting pitching talent. He also dumped $8.15 million in salary by trading Adam Ottavino to the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees still need to fill multiple positions with quality, and by trading away Otto, they need to add a relief arm to supplement his loss. They also let Tommy Kahnle walk in free agency after suffering an elbow injury last year that required Tommy John surgery. I can’t imagine the Yankees feel confident with their bullpen at the moment, so we should expect them to find a relief arm in the coming days. One stellar option is Trevor...
    GLEN BURNIE, MD. (WJZ) — Police are searching for three possibly teenaged suspects who allegedly robbed and threatened a person in Glen Burnie on Sunday. Officers responded to the 500 block of Hamlin Road for a report of a strong-arm robbery at around 10:30 a.m. that had just happened.

    Boston Mayor Martin Walsh, who was nominated last week to serve in President-elect Joe Biden’s Cabinet as labor secretary, was once linked to a federal probe alleging his associates had used illegal tactics to "strong-arm" local developers. Walsh faced scrutiny in 2016 after the Boston Globe reported that his name had surfaced during a federal investigation into allegations that unions had improperly pressured developers and businesses to hire union workers for their projects. While Walsh was not the probe’s subject and was never charged with a crime, questions arose about tactics he purportedly employed in 2012 while head of the Boston Building Trades, a group which oversaw several local unions, prior to his tenure as mayor. In an October 2012 conversation recorded through federal wiretaps, Walsh informed a local union leader that he had told housing developer AvalonBay Communities that it would face permitting delays if it did not hire...

    Getty Former Buffalo QB Tyree Jackson might be converted to tight end. The depth chart at quarterback is about to get a little more crowded for the Philadelphia Eagles after the team brought Tyree Jackson in for a tryout on Wednesday. He threw for 6,999 yards and 49 touchdowns in three years at the University of Buffalo. There’s a wrinkle to the transaction, though. The Eagles are working him out as a tight end, according to ESPN’s Field Yates, and not a quarterback. The 6-foot-7, 250-pounder definitely has the size, but can he catch the football? Well, the Seattle Seahawks already worked him out as a tight end but he left without a contract. And he did play basketball at Mona Shores High in Michigan, a trait that translated into great NFL careers for guys like Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez and Jimmy...
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have rarely shied from a ground-oriented approach on offense in seven seasons under coach Mike Zimmer, never more apparent than in their last game. Dalvin Cook has made this strong-arm strategy viable, rather than some tired relic. With 30 rushes for 163 yards and three touchdowns — plus two catches for 63 yards and another score — Cook carried the Vikings to a potentially pivotal victory at Green Bay. As Kirk Cousins only attempted 14 passes, Cook became the first player with 30 carries for Minnesota since 2013. “We’re going to have to ride this guy,” Zimmer said. The Vikings have had a player reach 30-plus rushing attempts 17 times in their 60-year history, including six by single-game franchise record holder Adrian Peterson (35). The Vikings are 16-0-1 in those games. When asked this week to assess Cook’s unique traits, Zimmer paused briefly before...

Deputies were called to the Walgreens located at 615 Broadway around 1:40 p.m. Authorities said the suspect asked an employee to look at a new cellphone that was behind a locked cabinet.

    Small Maine island experiences first baby birth in 93 years Pieces of Glass Found In This Grocery Item Saints Attempt To Strong-Arm New Orleans Wont Work The New Orleans Saints, like the vast majority of their NFL brethren, are not allowed to have fans at home games as a part of the city's efforts to combat coronavirus. It's not ideal, sure, but the end goal is certainly worth the cost and it's not like the Saints are at a massive disadvantage considering other teams are by and large in the same position. © Provided by The Big Lead City of New Orleans | Construction Photography/Avalon/Getty Images New Orleans was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and is still battling large case numbers. As a result, it doesn't seem that fans would be allowed to attend games anytime in the near future. The Saints are apparently displeased with this...
    Fitness trainer and Instagram model Qimmah Russo added another spectacular post to her abundant collection on Thursday night, to the delight of her 1.6 million followers. She flashed a pretty smile and an impressively ripped bicep in a pair of snaps that racked up almost 1,700 likes in the first five minutes after they were uploaded. Qimmah seemed to be demonstrating her phrase in the caption, in which she seemed to advise maintaining determination and finishing off a long day with satisfaction. Her body looked incredible in a black two-piece sports bra and tiny athletic shorts, topped with a tantalizing mesh shirt through which all of her bare skin could be seen. The garment was sleeveless to better display her chiseled shoulders, and the loose bottom grazed the most slender section of her waist. The rest of her toned abdominal region remained uncovered, displaying rock-hard definition and sparkling jewelry in...
