Police: Internet cafe employee handcuffed and robbed of more than $1,000
An internet cafe worker was handcuffed and robbed in Sunset Park over the weekend.
It happened early Saturday morning as two men entered the Lucky Internet Cafe on 57th Street.
Police say two suspects sprayed a 29-year-old worker with chemicals and handcuffed him.
While he was handcuffed, the suspects took about $600 from the register and another $500 from the workers wallet before taking off.
News 12 spoke to people in the area over the weekend who were horrified to hear what happened.
"We are scared for that because we never heard in our community something happens like this," says Sam Ni, a nearby business owner. "I'm scared, I never go out with anything just to keep safe."
Police say both men wanted for questioning are believed to be in their early 20s.
One was last seen wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt, while the other had on a light-colored shirt.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
