BROOKLYN — Two gunmen stormed into a bodega in Flatbush Wednesday morning and forced six people into a back room while they robbed the store, police and witnesses said.
Guns drawn, the robbers entered Monumental Grocery at 1276 Flatbush Ave. about 9 a.m. and announced a stick-up, police and witnesses said.
"Holdup!" they said, according to the owner, Erasno Perez. "Nobody move!"
Police said six people were taken to a back room in the store while the robbers stole their cell phones and other valuables from the victims.
Perez said they hit the cash register, too, and swiped $750 and his Lotto machine, which is worth $350.
"I don't know why they do that," he said outside of the store after the robbery.
No one was injured.
The suspects are still on the lam.
