Man Wanted In Phone Store Robbery

By Liz Goff
Police are searching for a man who stole 20 cell phones and $350 cash from a Metro PCS Store near the Queensbridge Houses on January 5.

Cops said the suspect walked into the store on 40th Avenue near 13th Street at about 12:30 a.m. on January 5, where he threatened a clerk and demanded the cash. The clerk complied and handed over $350 from the store register, police said.

The suspect then forced the clerk to show him where the phones were stocked; he grabbed 20 cell phones and fled in an unknown direction.

The man, in his mid-to-late 30s, was wearing glasses and was dressed in all black clothing.
