JAMAICA — Police have asked for the public’s assistance in finding and identifying two suspects in connection with three commercial robberies that took place last month in Jamaica and Brooklyn.
During each of the robberies, the suspects, both armed with firearms, would enter the business and demand cash from the register, police said. No shots were fired or injuries reported and an undetermined amount of cash was stolen in all three incidents, according to the authorities.
On Jan. 19, police said the suspects robbed the Greenpoint Deli/Market at 903 Manhattan Ave. in Brooklyn at 4:03 a.m. and Jamaica Gourmet Deli at 89-02 Jamaica Ave. at 5:05 a.m. On Jan. 21, they robbed Texas Fried Chicken at 639 Wilson Ave. in Brooklyn at 12:04 a.m.
The suspects were described by authorities as black males in their 20s. One is about 5-foot-5, the other about 5-foot-10, police said, and they were armed with a black, semi-automatic firearm and a silver revolver.
Anyone with information regarding the robberies or suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-8477.
