Luna Star Cafe Robbery Puts Retired NYC Cop in Hospital
The three men entered the popular café and performance space, located at 775 NE 125th St., around 11:30 Saturday night. They ordered the seven people inside to hand over the cash in their wallets and then to drop to the floor. They also pocketed about $500 from the cash register.
"We kept saying, 'Don't hurt anybody; take what you want,' " owner Alexis Sanfield told the Miami Herald.
Goldstein, a regular at the café, began struggling with one of the crooks before a bullet was fired. He was rushed to Jackson's Ryder Trauma Center in stable condition. Doctors stapled a laceration on his head, and he was released Sunday.
The men took off on foot. No other details have been released. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
