Police are looking for a knife-wielding man who allegedly tried to rob a 7-Eleven on Northern Boulevard early Sunday morning.

The man entered the 34-17 Northern Blvd. store at around 6:30 a.m. and allegedly demanded money from a 39-year-old female employee.

The employee refused to provide the cash and the man fled the location and then entered the 36th Street subway station nearby.

The suspect left empty handed and no injuries were reported.

Police released video of the suspect.

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).

People are desperate to eat and pay bills. The pandemic is not over no matter how many maskless free concerts and comedy shows take place in our neighborhood. How about helping poor families the unemployed and mentally ill so they do not have resort to such measures to survive. IMO most of these crimes are a cry for help.

Stop making excuses for violent felons. Before anyone says the suspect was not violent, he pulled a knife on the employee. Whether he used it or not does not matter. Armed robbery is a violent crime.

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
