Police continue to search for two men who robbed a Jamaica grocery store at gunpoint last week.
The heist happened at 3 p.m. on April 7 inside the Stop 1 bodega located at 137-38 Jamaica Ave., authorities said.
According to police, one of the two suspects displayed a black firearm upon entering the business and demanded cash from a store clerk. Both suspects then walked behind the counter, grabbed more than $500 in cash and fled the scene in an unknown direction.
The NYPD described the gun-toting crook as a 30-year-old black male standing 5 foot 9 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
His accomplice was described by police as a black male last seen wearing a New York Yankees baseball cap, a dark jacket and blue jeans.
