The search is on for a dastardly duo that held up a Bensonhurst convenience store earlier this month.
According to the police, the pair stole $400 from a grocery on 18th Avenue near 66th Street, at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Sun., Jan. 6.
Cops say the two men, both Caucasians about 30 years old, entered the store and, while one acted as a lookout, the other demanded money as he pointed a black revolver at the 22-year-old clerk, who handed over the cash, whereupon the duo took off, on foot, eastbound on 66th Street.
According to the NYPD, one of the men is approximately 160 pounds and 5’6” tall, and wore glasses. He was last seen in a black jacket, blue jeans, a red bandana and brown work boots. The other suspect is described as approximately 165 pounds and 5’8” in height. He was last seen in a black jacket, a white hooded sweatshirt, white gloves, blue jeans and black sneakers.
