Police were looking for two men responsible for a crime spree in numerous locations around the borough this month, striking most recently in Bayside.
The two suspects entered a bodega located at 150-09 Bayside Ave. just after 7 p.m. Thursday and removed $2,000 from the register and fled in a four-door silver Honda Accord, police said.
One suspect was described as a light skinned man between 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 5 feet, 10 inches tall who was last seen wearing a black mask covering his face, blue gloves and he was armed with a handgun.
The other suspect was described as a black man who was last seen wearing all black, a white mask and blue gloves.
Investigators believe the same silver Honda Accord was used last Monday in Woodside when the light skinned suspect entered a Pizza Hut at 51-02 Northern Blvd. just before 10 p.m. and flashed a gun before making off with $160 in cash.
This time, the suspect was wearing a white mask covering his face, a blue tyvek suit and blue gloves, according to authorities.
The two were believed to be the same men that robbed a 7-Eleven at 61-19 Northern Blvd. at gunpoint Dec. 17. They fled with more than $300 in cash, police said.
The duo’s first armed robbery allegedly took place Thursday, Jan. 4m just after 11 p.m., at a BP gas station located at 29-16 Francis Lewis Blvd. in Flushing. The suspects took off with $900 in cash, police said
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
