The police released video footage Friday of three men wanted for holding up a Woodside cellphone store at gunpoint last month.

The suspects allegedly entered the AT&T store located at 58-20 Roosevelt Ave. at around 6:55 p.m. on Aug. 26, before one of the men displayed a firearm and forced an employee into the back office and demanded he open the safe.

The men then placed $60,000 worth of cellphones into a duffle bag and fled the location on foot. There were no injuries reported as a result of the incident.

The suspects are described by police as being between 25 to 35 years of age and having a dark complexion. Police have released surveillance video and photos of two of the three suspects that were taken from the store.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

This is De Blasio’s New York and who’s policies the current mayor continues to follow and support. I predict this will continue through this decade. It will take some major policy changes with the support of the voters and citizens.

It'll continue

Until the city and state goes to the other side. Which will never happen.

Don’t complain if you keep voting hugs for thugs dems.

Here for the Lulz

The Sunnyside Post – come for the solid local news, stay for the Gong Show of impotent rage in the comments section.

Fox has turned the weak minded into an annoying menace

Whatever – Does your political bandwagon ever take a break?

lets be honest its the same type of people committing all the crime

80 dg outside and they are wearing hoddies and masks. same thugs cant pull up their pants properly and show their asses to the world. I’m so fed up with these people. Please please god that the republicans claim every office in November and bring back civility to our streets


I tell my kids to be on heightened levels alert around people “having a dark complexion.” My buddy from work, a man of color told me the same exact thing. I’m a a life long Democrat.

Boomers still doing the "Mets tickets" thing

Maybe it’s time to move on from ranting about our former mayor?

Playing with fascism never ends well.

A thinking person never agrees 100% percent with anyone then there is actually only one of them doing the thinking. Some may even call agreeing 100% with a party “fascist”.
