BED-STUY — Two robbers strolled into a local bodega last week and held up the clerk at gunpoint, the NYPD said.

The duo entered the bodega at 45 Rockaway Ave., at the corner of Marion Street, on Monday, August 8, about 11:20 p.m. and demanded cash from behind the counter, according to police and surveillance video.


The first man, wearing a black mask, pointed a pistol at the clerk while the second man, who wore a red mask, filled a black plastic crate with 10 cartons of cigarettes, police said.

The men then fled in an unknown direction, according to the NYPD.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
