Bronx Drug Robbery and Deadly Fall Lead To SDNY Detention As US Cites Felony Murder

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 5 -- Jeffrey Guzman de la Cruz is said to have participated in the attempted armed robbery of a drug dealer in an apartment in 940 Grand Concourse in March 2017, during or just after which a woman went out the window of the apartment's kitchen and fell to her death. 

 On March 5, 2020 - three years later - he was in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court, and the government sought detention. His co-defendant Miguel Sarante, represented by Sullivan & Cromwell, consented to detention. But Guzman de la Cruz sought bail, represented by Sabrina Shroff. 

  Shroff argued that Guzman de la Cruz was no longer in the apartment when the women went out the window, then in the alternative that even if he were to still have been in the apartment, the struggle had nothing to do with her going out the window to her death.

  The Assistant US Attorney responded with a two word phrase: felony murder. Suddenly Guzman de la Cruz' post-arrest statement was cast in a different light.

    Judge Kevin N. Fox denied the request for bail. Inner City Press will continue to follow this case. It is US v. Guzman de la Cruz, 20-cr-157 (Liman / Fox)
