Two Men Rob Subway Rider and Liquor Store in Violent Crime Spree

Feb. 19, 2020 By Kristen Torres

Police are looking for two suspects who robbed a man in a Brooklyn subway station and then went on to steal cash and alcohol at a nearby liquor store.

The suspects approached a 31-year-old man inside of the Marcy Avenue subway station on Feb. 15 around 7:40 p.m. They brandished a knife and demanded money, making off with about $120 from the victim before fleeing the station.

The thieves then entered a liquor store a few blocks away, at 306 Roebling St. They approached a 25-year-old man working inside the store and proceeded to punch the victim multiple times in the face.

The two men stole $1,000, a driver’s license and liquor from the store before fleeing westbound on South 8th St., according to police.

One of the suspects was last seen wearing a white hooded shirt, and the second suspect was wearing a multi-colored winter coat.
Anyone with information in regard to the identities of the individuals is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
