Police are looking for a man who threatened a worker with a gun at this Chinese food restaurant in Richmond Hill last month.

He wanted it his way — or else.

Police are looking for a man who showed his gun to a Richmond Hill restaurant worker during a dispute over his bill.

Authorities said the incident took place at 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 22 inside the Rong Hua Chinese food restaurant located at 131-19 Jamaica Ave. The NYPD released video of the incident late Saturday night.

Police said the perpetrator, described as a black male in his mid-20s standing between 5 foot 9 inches and 5 foot 11 inches tall and weighing 140 pounds, got into a verbal argument with the 39-year-old male worker over the price charged for his food.

During the argument, it was reported, the unhappy customer took out a firearm, scaring the worker. The gunman left the restaurant moments later without further incident.

Officers from the 102nd Precinct responded to the episode; the worker was not injured, and no property was taken.

Authorities said the suspect was last seen wearing a gold grill on his top teeth, a black San Francisco Giants baseball cap, a black hooded sweatshirt and black jeans.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
