Police search for Park Slope robbery suspect
Police are searching for the man responsible for an armed robbery at the Park Slope Smoke Shop last Wednesday.
Owner Mohammed Esa fought off the knife-wielding robber with a garbage can and closed the register before the suspect could get away with most of the money. Esa says the man escaped with about $10.
Police say the suspect is described as a black male about six feet tall and weighing approximately 205 pounds. They say he was last seen wearing a blue baseball cap, black jeans and blue shoes when he fled in a green 2009 Ford vehicle.
Police are asking anyone with information on the robbery to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
