BROOKLYN - Police are trying to track down the men behind a five-store robbery spree in Sheepshead Bay.

Authorities say two suspects were caught on surveillance video in the latest robbery at the A&H Deli on Avenue Z Sunday. The owner says he recognized one of the men as the same person who already robbed his store on two previous occasions so he was able to block the door.

Cops say that the first incident at the deli happened Oct. 22 when a man flashed a firearm, and took off with cash and cigarettes. It happened a second time on Nov. 16, but the suspects fled empty handed.

The A.H&F Grocery on Ocean Avenue was also targeted by three armed men on Oct. 5, followed by a robbery at a Shop and Smile Bodega where one armed man made away with cash and cigarettes on Nov. 16.
