MIDTOWN, Manhattan (PIX11) — A man threatened a worker with a knife before taking two MacBooks out of a store in Manhattan, police said Friday.

The robber removed the laptops from a display and tried to leave a Best Buy along 23rd Street near Sixth Avenue at around 8 p.m. on April 23 before a 22-year-old employee confronted him, officials said. The man pulled out a knife and said, “Try me,” according to police.

In fear for his safety, the worker stepped aside. The thief took the laptops, worth $1,900, out of the store and fled southbound on Sixth Avenue.

Police asked for help from the public to find the suspect, who they described as being around 40 years old, 180 pounds, 6 feet tall, bald and of athletic build. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a camouflaged hooded jacket, a black backpack, sunglasses, black pants and black shoes.
