Bronx motorcycle thieves snatch dad’s gold chain, drag him along street

A pair of thieves on a motorcycle grabbed a man’s gold chain around his neck as he was out buying ice cream for his daughter in the Bronx — dragging him along the sidewalk, cops said.

The 35-year-old dad was standing on East Burnside Avenue near Walton Avenue in University Heights around 3:30 p.m. June 6 when the duo drove up to him and snatched the chain, pulling him along the street until they ripped it off.

They then sped off with the loot, heading east on East Burnside Avenue, cops said.
