Cupcake caper

A note-passing thief raided the new Cupcake Kings store on Voorhies Avenue on Jan. 15, taking $400.

Workers at the sweet shop, which is between E. 16th Street and Sheepshead Bay Road, said that the thief came in at 4:53 pm and handed the cashier a note reading, “I have a gun, don’t try anything. Give me cash now.”

He then handed the woman a black bag to put the cash in. All the while his other hand was in his pocket, as if he had a pistol.

“Hurry up, hurry up! Read the note!” he demanded before running off with the cash.
