Thugs Sprint For Money, Cell Phones

By Howard Schwach

Two unidentified thugs, one of them with a handgun, forced the employees into a bathroom at a Far Rockaway cellular phone store and then robbed the store of phones and cash, police say.

Detectives from the 101 Precinct in Far Rockaway say that the two men entered the Sprint Cellular store at 21-03 Mott Avenue at about 7 p.m. on November 15 and forced the two employees into a rear bathroom. They told the two to stay there or get shot, a police source said. They then took an unspecified amount of money from the cash register, as well as several cell phones and accessories.

The two fled on foot on Beach 21 Street, leaving the store clerks in the bathroom.

Anybody with information on the two perpetrators is asked to call the 101 Precinct Squad at 718-868- 3428 or the Crimestoppers hotline at 1-800-577 TIPS.
