Cops Seek Gunpoint Robbers


Detectives from the 101 Precinct in Far Rockaway are looking for two men who held up a Far Rockaway store at gunpoint on December 22. According to police, two men entered the Discount Store at 10-79 Beach 21 Street at about 8 p.m. The two acted as customers, picking up merchandise and eventually moving to the checkout counter. As the clerk tallied the cost, however, one of the men pulled a silver handgun and yelled, "Nobody move." The gunman then came around the counter and took cash and an iPhone from the clerk's pocket. The two men then fled southbound on Beach 21 Street with $20 from the clerk and two bags of merchandise. The gunman is described as 17-20 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, with hair on his chin and wearing short braids. His accomplice is described as 17-20 years old, wearing a black flight jacket and a black knit cap. Anyone with information is urged to call the 101 Squad at 718-868-3428 or Crimestoppers at 1-800- 577-TIPS.
