Cops: 5 kids wanted for Bronx furniture store holdupPosted: Updated:
Police are trying to track down a group of kids who they say held up a Bronx furniture store.
According to authorities, five boys between 10 and 18 years old walked into the store at 513 East Tremont Ave. and pulled out a knife, and possibly a gun. They say the suspects demanded that employees hand over their cell phones and then took off.
Officials say no one was injured. Workers at other stores in the same area have reported similar crimes in the past few weeks. A group held up a medical supply store for cell phones about three weeks ago, and a Boost Mobile store across the street was robbed of a cell phone at gunpoint recently. Investigators haven't said whether they believe the crimes are linked.
