Photos released of Queens, Upper East Side robbery suspects
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police are searching for two men wanted for a string of robberies in Manhattan and Queens, and they're hoping surveillance photos will lead to arrests.
In each case, the men, one armed with a gun, went inside their targeted locations and demanded money.
The first incident took place just after 7 p.m. on May 11 at the Woodside Liquors and Wines on Woodside Avenue in Queens.
The men then went on to rob at least eight other stores, most recently this past weekend. They struck twice on Sunday, at the Orlando News store on York Avenue on the Upper East Side just after 7 p.m. and then the M&N Deli Grocery on Atlantic Avenue a little more than two hours later.
Other targets have included the Shorna Variety and Grocery on 48th Street, the York Food & Convenience on York Avenue, the Desai Convenience store on 43rd Avenue, the Gulf Gas Station on Harding Expressway, the Beverage Depot on Northern Boulevard and the Hi-Fi News and Grocery 2nd Avenue.
The suspects are both described as Hispanic males, standing 6-feet tall and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds. One has a tattoo on his left forearm.
Anyone with information in regards to any of these robberies is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
