Cops are looking for two men who allegedly attacked and robbed an employee over the weekend inside an internet cafe in Sunset Park.
According to authorities, at around 1:20 a.m. on Saturday, April 6, the two crooks entered an internet cafe on 57th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, approached a 29-year-old man who worked there and sprayed him with a chemical substance before handcuffing him.
The duo then stole $600 from the cash register and $500 from the victim’s wallet before fleeing the scene.
The man sustained minor injuries.
Cops say one of the suspects is an Asian male in his early twenties with a large build. He was last seen wearing a light colored, hooded sweatshirt, jeans and sneakers.
The second suspect is also described as an Asian male in his early twenties, but with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a light colored, hooded shirt and light colored pants.
