BROOKLYN - Police are searching for three men who they say are responsible for six armed robberies in Brooklyn.

Jehad Alzghood, the owner of a bodega on 7th Avenue, says his business was targeted by the robbers earlier this month. Alzghood says the armed men cornered him and his worker and demanded cash.

The bodega owner says he pushed an emergency button, but the robbers fled by the time police arrived five minutes later. Alzghood says the robbers made off with about $1,000.

The incident was captured by the store's surveillance camera.

Police say the three robbers are accompanied by a fourth man who drives the getaway car, a black Ford Expedition.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
