Gunpoint Robbery at Stuy Town T-Mobile Store
From Town & Village:
Police are on the lookout for two men who held up a Stuyvesant Town T-Mobile store at gunpoint on Sunday.
At December 13 at 3:30 p.m., the suspects walked into the store located at 322 First Avenue and East 19th Street. While one of them waved a gun around, the men ordered two employees and one male customer into a back room. The suspects then forced an employee to turn over 40 Apple and Samsung phones off a shelf as well as approximately $1500 in cash from a safe. Video surveillance shows the employee doing this as the customer is made to lie down on the floor nearby with his head down.
The first suspect is described as black, between 30 to 40 years-old, around 5 ft. 11 ins., approximately 270 lbs. and has facial hair. He was last seen wearing a dark grey hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
The other suspect is black, approximately 25 years-old, around 5 ft. 9 ins. and approximately 170lbs. He was last seen wearing a light grey hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.
