Authorities are on the lookout for the two men they say robbed a Crown Heights store at gunpoint on Feb. 11.

Police reports say two people entered the store near the corner of Sterling Place and Schenectady Avenue at 10:53 p.m. A 33-year-old employee was working inside the location when one of the individuals brandished a gun while the other took $3,500 from the cash register.

No injuries were reported, however both men fled the store, running north along Schenectady Avenue.

The robbery took place within North Brooklyn’s 77th Precinct, which has had 20 other robberies this year as of Feb. 11, according to Police Department data. The nabe has seen similar gun crimes. Last month, cops arrested a gunman for fatally shooting a 20-year-old Brooklynite just blocks away from the Feb. 11 robbery. 

Cops are still looking for the two robbers. Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline or by submitting their tips through the Crime Stoppers website
