Police are searching for two men who robbed a T-Mobile store and then fired a gun at an employee as they fled the Elmhurst location this weekend.
The two alleged perpetrators entered the T-Mobile store at 86-16 Queens Boulevard around 5:35 p.m. on Saturday and displayed a gun, demanding that everyone move to the back of the store, according to police.
The suspects then took about $600 worth of store property before fleeing the premises.
When one of the employees of the store chased after the suspects, one discharged his gun at the employee, though the shot missed and no one was injured.
The first suspect is described as a 5-foot-10 black man with a dark complexion and a Caesar-style haircut. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat, a black face mask, a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and tan gloves.
The second suspect is described as a 6-foot-2 black man weighing about 250 pounds, with a dark complexion and dread locks. He was last seen wearing a brown coat, a blue hooded sweatshirt, black pants, tan shoes and a tan shirt over his face.
Police have released photos of the suspects, and anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
