Borough Park, NY - Two brothers with a long history of prior arrests were apprehended by police for the December 27th beating of a woman in Borough Park.

The incident took place on 16th Avenue in front of Beth Hamedrash Shaarei Yosher at approximately 7:30 PM.  Surveillance video obtained by Boro Park Shomrim show the two men, Jorge Basantes, 29, and Fernando Basantes, 27, surrounding the victim and throwing her to the ground before making off with her bag, which included credit cards and $300 in cash.

Police released the video footage to the public nearly two weeks ago and a tip to the Crime Stoppers hotline led them to the Basantes. 

Fernando Basantes, who has eight prior arrests, was arrested on January 15th on numerous charges including robbery, grand larceny, assault, criminal possession of stolen property, menacing and harassment.

Jorge Basantes, who has six prior arrests, was apprehended by the NYPD on Monday and charged with robbery, assault, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, reckless endangerment and harassment.


The 68 year old victim, who fought back against her attackers, was not seriously injured in the incident.
