Police: Duo burglarized 3 Flatbush restaurants

FLATBUSH -

Police say they believe the same two people are behind burglaries at three Flatbush-area restaurants.

The Atlas Steakhouse on Coney Island Avenue was burglarized early Monday morning. Surveillance video shows two people wearing hoods hiding behind a car so passers-by wouldn't see them. They then run over to the front of the restaurant and begin breaking in.

Restaurant manager Edwin Rivera says the suspects took more than $500 and some liquor bottles. He says he believes they are the same two men who broke into the restaurant about six months ago.

Down the street, a similar break-in occurred at the Wolf and Lamb restaurant. Police add that a third spot nearby was also hit.

Police say the suspects made off with cash from all three restaurants.
