HELL'S KITCHEN — Police have released surveillance footage of an armed robber they say held up a Tenth Avenue liquor store for $780.

The man walked into Cellar 53 Wine & Spirits, near West 52nd Street, and pulled out a silver revolver and demanded money from a woman behind the counter Sept. 28 around 2:45 p.m., the NYPD said.

The employee gave him the money, and he fled south on Tenth Avenue and then west on West 52nd Street, the NYPD said.  

He’s believed to be 45- to 55-years old, about 5-foot-5-inches tall and 175 to 190 pounds.
