Cops have released additional surveillance footage of the talkative bandit and his sidekick who robbed an employee at a cellphone dealership in Fresh Meadows last weekend.

Around 5:15 p.m. on May 21, authorities said, one of the suspects entered the Metro PCS store located at 75-25 Parsons Blvd. and engaged the 65-year-old male employee in conversation. He then pulled out a handgun and demanded money.

Law enforcement sources said the employee complied and gave the individual $100 in cash from both the register and his pockets. The bandit — along with the second man, who stood outside the store during the robbery acting as a look out — fled the scene southbound on Parsons Boulevard. The incident was reported to the 107th Precinct.

In the new surveillance footage below, the second suspect is seen walking by, followed by the first suspect, who robbed the store at gunpoint.


Police described the first suspect as a light-skinned male last seen wearing sunglasses, dark-colored pants and a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with the word “KING” written across the chest.
