CYPRESS HILLS, Brooklyn (PIX11) — Two thieves robbed a Cypress Hills deli at gunpoint of more than $5,500 in cash and merchandise, according to authorities.
The pair approached the counter at Midway Deli & Tobacco on Atlantic Avenue near Pennsylvania Avenue around 8:30 p.m. Sunday, and one of the crooks pulled out a gun and demanded money, cops said.
The gunman vaulted over the counter and trained the firearm on a worker, while his accomplice loaded items into bags, police said.
The duo fled with $1,500 cash and over $4,000 in merchandise, as well as the worker’s cellphone and belt, officials said. No injuries were reported by authorities in the stick-up.
Investigators released surveillance images and video of the incident late Monday in a public appeal for tips.
