The NYPD is looking for a pair of perps wanted in connection with two robberies that bear a striking resemblance to crimes that occurred in early September inside southern Brooklyn grocery stores.
Cops say that on Friday, September 25, at approximately 11 p.m., the suspects—both described as black men ranging from 25 to 35 years old—entered a grocery store located at 63-22 Flushing Avenue, within the confines of the 104th Precinct in Queens and demanded money. Once they stole cash and lottery cards, the suspects fled the scene.
Then on Monday, October 12, at approximately 11:10 p.m., police say the suspects entered the bagel store located at 1609 Victory Boulevard, in the confines of the 120th Precinct in Staten Islandand demanded money. The clerk complied and the suspects fled.
Cops say the same two suspects are wanted for robberies inside grocery stores within the confines of the 61st and 62nd Precinct after stealing cell phones, cigarette cartons and approximately $3,700 on Thursday, August 31 and Thursday, September 3.
The suspects are further described as being 5’9″ to 6’1″ in height, weighing approximately 180 pounds and having short black hair.
