Bronx Bodega Robbery in May Yields Murder Charge against Rodney Spratley Now in SDNY

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY EXCLUSIVE, Aug 24 – Rodney Spratley, while robbing a Bronx bodega at 1665 Topping Avenue in May, shot a man in the hip.

 At the time, the man was expected to survive. But he was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital on 183rd Street. 

   On August 24, 2023 Spratley was presented before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag court. 

 The charge, now, included murder. The victim died, and the case was entirely sealed until the presentment, no announcement of which was made. 

  At the time of arrest, Spratley's mother said "He’s a good kid, maybe a little lost and confused. I can’t say he’s had a perfect life. None of us have. But I broke my back to give him everything. He’s a little troubled now, I guess.”  

And indicted for murder.

The case is US v. Spratley, 23-cr-283
