NYPD: Man Robs Dunkin’ Donuts on Woodside Avenue

Sept. 24, 2017 By Christian Murray

The police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed a Dunkin’ Donuts in Woodside earlier this month.

The suspect entered the 58-01 Woodside Ave. store around 6:00 am Saturday, September 16, ordered a coffee and when he went to pay for it he reached over and tried to remove cash from the register, police said. The employee shut the register draw and his attempt to get cash failed.

The suspect then walked around the counter and removed three cash trays that had an undetermined amount of money, according to police.

There were no injuries.

The suspect has been described as having dark complexion, and was last seen wearing a black hat, black jacket, blue jeans and black sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS

Yes, the video shows the cashier bravely pushing the robber’s hand away& closing the register. Probably never expected him to go behind the counter! Thank God the staff there survived . Very scary..
