Convenience store crooks

Three looters robbed an Emmons Avenue convenience store of approximately $1,000 and several cartons of cigarettes on Feb. 26.

One of the robbers pointed a silver firearm at the store clerk while the other perps reached around the counter and grabbed the items after the three men entered the store on the corner of Sheepshead Bay Road at 3:42 am, police reported.

The perps made their getaway on foot after three minutes, according to cops.


A scoundrel threatened an Avenue V store employee in an attempted robbery on Feb. 26, but ended up fleeing the scene without stealing anything.

The perp went behind the counter at 4:14 pmand threatened an employee to “give me the money or I will punch you in the face.” The employee closed the cash register and pointed to the store’s security camera, before the would-be thief fled empty-handed.

The camera footage of the incident clearly shows the perp’s face, according to the report. — Aidan Graham
