A 50-year-old Brooklyn man who fell to his death from atop a four-story building was lured onto the roof by two women who had promised him sex, police sources said Thursday.

Instead of showing Robert Reichl a good time, the women led him into a trap shortly after midnight on Wednesday — and stole $2,000 in cash he had been carrying.


Three toughs were waiting on the roof of the building on Fourth Ave. near 47th St. in Sunset Park, the sources said, and at some point the men attacked Reichl.

One of them, Ruben Santiago, sprayed Reichl in the face with a chemical spray believed to be mace that caused the victim to reel back, lose his balance and fall off the rooftop, the source said.

Reichl, a Bay Ridge resident, landed in the rear courtyard of the building, where he died.

Police have arrested three people in connection with Reichl’s death — Santiago, 23, Glennys Reyes, 23, and Randy Ortiz, 24, according to the sources.


Reyes was one of the two women who set up Reichl, and Ortiz was one of the two men with Santiago on the rooftop, the sources said. Investigators are still hunting for the second woman and the third man.

Detectives believe the five were acting in concert and split the money afterward, one police source said.

The three suspects currently under arrest have been moved to Central Booking and are expected to be arraigned Thursday evening. Santiago was charged with second-degree murder and robbery, the sources said.

Reyes lifted the money from Reichl’s pocket, the sources said.

“He probably didn’t even know his money was gone,” one source said.

Reyes has been charged with grand larceny; Ortiz was hit with the same rap, according to the sources.
