Police are looking for two men who allegedly walked out of a Glendale gas station with stolen cases of beer last week – before brandishing a gun and a knife at workers who tried to stop them from fleeing.

The suspects entered the Shell gas station, located at 90-05 Myrtle Ave., on Jan. 30 at around 1:25 a.m. and made their way over to the beer aisle, police said.

Video surveillance, released by police, shows one of the suspects carrying two cases of Corona beer to the exit by the counter. He then drops the cases on the floor and looks back at his alleged accomplice.

Instead of paying, he glances at the store clerk behind the counter before strolling out the door.

The store clerk and another worker can be seen giving chase before the second assailant – carrying another two cases of Corona beer — barges through the pair at the exit door.

The first suspect then displayed a gun while the other perpetrator pulled out a knife, police said. The two suspects then fled the scene in a 2022 black Ford Explorer.

The first suspect is described as having a light complexion and is between 20 and 25 years of age. He is believed to be approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall and was wearing a brown-colored construction coat, black sweatshirt, black pants and black shoes. Police say he displayed a black firearm during the incident.

The second suspect is also described as having a light complexion and is between 20 and 25 years of age. He is described as being approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing black-colored pants and hoody, black gloves and a black mask. Police say he pulled out a silver knife when confronted by the workers.

There were no injuries.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

End these ridiculous mask mandates so the criminals dont have an excuse to hide their faces.


This has to go on America’s stupidest (alleged) criminals. The guy is not wearing a legal face mask??!! I guess he had a sub conscious desire to be caught unless he is mentally challenged.

Use your head and vote red. These Democrats and their laidback policies are ruining all the progress we have made as New Yorkers.

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
