BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A pair of armed robbers looted a bodega cash register while holding employees at gunpoint Wednesday, according to a police report.
The two men, wearing masks, sidled into the corner store at Jefferson Avenue and Marcus Garvey Boulevard just before 6 p.m. Aug. 2, and held three store employees at gunpoint, police said.
As one of the robbers threatened to shoot three male employees if they didn’t comply, one of the bandits, captured on surveillance footage, can be seen awkwardly vaulting over the counter, front-flipping into the employee-only area and rifling through the cash register.
The robber, wearing gloves, swiftly swiped the cash from the register and the pair fled with about $1,000, police said.
The suspects were described as both in their late teens and standing about 5 feet, 9 inches, police said.
One of the bandits was last seen wearing a multicolor, striped jacket, black pants, and black and white sneakers, while his accomplice was last seen wearing a light gray hoodie, black pants, and black sneakers, police said.
An employee at the store declined to comment.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit tips on the website.
