Police seek 2 masked men in armed robbery at Cypress Hills bodega
The NYPD is searching for two masked men who walked into a Cypress Hills bodega and stole $1,500 in cash and $4,000 in merchandise.
Surveillance video shows the two suspects wearing ski masks and sunglasses in a verbal dispute with the person behind the cash register, before one suspect pulls out a handgun and points it over the counter.
The suspect with the handgun then climbs over the glass counter and holds the person behind the register at gunpoint while the second suspect takes merchandise off of the walls.
The worker told News 12 that the robbers stole his phone and belt, and that this is the fifth time this year alone the bodega has been robbed.
Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
