‘Are people scared? Yes they are:’ Bronx bodega owners on edge after armed robberies

Cops are searching for two pairs of armed robbers that held up two bodegas in West Bronx.

On Nov. 24, at 4:15 a.m., cops say two suspects entered a supermarket on East 161st Street and ordered everyone on the floor.  The suspected then demanded the employee behind the counter to open the register, said police.  The employee did and the suspects removed money and fled.

Just four days later, on 171st Street, at 11 p.m., a similar episode transpired.  Two men walked into a bodega with a gun, ordered everyone on the floor, got cash and fled.

Today on 161st Street near Grand Concourse deli owners were on high alert.  Many say the area is typically swarming with cops since it’s a block away from the Bronx Courthouse.

“Are people scared? Yes they are,” said Abdullah.

He owns a deli three storefronts from the one that got robbed.  He says after the robbery he checked all of the cameras in the store to make sure they were working.

PIX 11 contributor and former NYPD detective, Wally Zeins, said deli owners could deter thieves by removing posters and advertisements from the store windows.

“If you do that then someone passing by could call 911 if they see something inside,” Zeins said.

Cops are asking anyone with information to call Crimestoppers at 1800-577-TIPS

    Unfortunately the Bronx will always be a s$&t hole. The reason? The real reason is the Bronx da’s office is incompetent when putting violent thugs behind bars!! They let trash back out on the streets by the thousands putting the citizens of the Bronx back in harms way! Wake up Bronx time for a change and a shake-up in the da’s office! if these thugs who robbed this bodega are caught,I would bet 1000 percent that they are repeat offenders that were released by the soft da’s office . What a disgrace!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this

    site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.

    I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera.

    Excellent Blog!
