The man walked into 19 grocery stores and bodegas throughout the city between Feb. 16 and July 24 and pointed a gun at the teller in each one. Police say he then took cash and cartons of cigarettes before making his getaway, police said.
Police said the man, who wears a bandana over his face, robbed six Manhattan grocers and 13 Brooklyn grocers.
In the July 24 incident, at a 235 Utica Ave. bodega in Crown Heights, police say he was accompanied by a tall, bald man wearing jeans and a multicolored button-down shirt who worked as a lookout.
The man left each of the attendants unharmed. The investigation is ongoing, police said.
