NYPD: Two Men Rob 7-Eleven at Gunpoint on Northern Boulevard

Dec. 20, 2017 By Tara Law

Police are looking for two masked men who allegedly robbed a Woodside 7-Eleven at gunpoint on Sunday.

The two men went inside the 61-19 Northern Boulevard store at 11:40 p.m. before one of them pointed a gun at a 46 year-old male employee and ordered him to get on the floor.

The second suspect forced another employee, a 34 year-old man, to open the cash register. He then took $300 from the register and ordered the employee to the floor.

The robbers went through the employees’ pockets and took the 34-year-old’s phone and $40 in cash. The men grabbed an unknown quantity of lottery tickets, lighters and cigarettes and took off.

The men wore blue coveralls, sunglasses, and blue gloves. One of the men wore a baseball cap and covered his face with a scarf. The other wore a black mask that covered his head and face.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)
