Four thieves robbed two stores in one day last month.

Police are hunting a band of thieves wanted for two back-to-back robberies in Brownsville and Canarsie last month.

Four thieves entered an Atlantic Avenue deli near Marconi Place and Thomas S. Boyland Street at 5:17 p.m. on July 28, when a man wearing a yellow bandana over his face pointed a gun at the cashier and an accomplice hopped over the counter to loot the register and nab the employee’s cell before hightailing it, cops said.

Two hours later, the same crooks entered a Chinese restaurant on Flatlands Avenue between E. 92nd and E. 93rd streets at 7:40 p.m, one bandit holding an employee at gunpoint, while another punched her in the face, cops said.

This time, the crooks weren’t able to loot the eatery’s register, and they fled empty handed, according to police.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
