Cops are looking for a masked trio who robbed a Queens business at gunpoint on Wednesday evening.
According to police, at 5:55 p.m. on Sept. 14 three unknown men entered the establishment, located at 135-20 109th Avenue. Two of the suspects were carrying handguns and the third appeared to be holding an assault rifle.
The suspects demanded the cellphones from people in the store, taking two from store patrons and two from employees. The crooks then took $3,000 from the register before fleeing the scene in a black Mazda 3 sedan. There were no injuries reported as a result of the incident.
The NYPD released photos and video of the suspects, who are described as men in their 20s-30s with dark complexions. Two suspects were last seen wearing dark-colored clothing and dark face masks, and the third was last seen wearing a yellow and grey jacket and a ghost-face mask.
