Bandits Cash In At R’wood Supermarket
Rather than shopping for food, a pair of armed suspects came to a Ridgewood supermarket last Friday afternoon, Mar. 8, and picked up some cash during a stickup, police said.
Both suspects-whom law enforcement sources described as black males-remain at large as of press time .
One of the crooks was described as standing 6′-tall, weighing 190 lbs. and carrying a silver revolver. Police said his cohort stands at 5’5″-tall and weighs about 170 lbs.
Reportedly, the robbery took place just before 4:15 p.m. last Friday at the Food Bazaar supermarket located at 1590 Gates Ave. off Wyckoff Avenue.
According to information obtained by police, the two suspects entered the location, confronted two cashiers and demanded money. After issuing his demand, the gun-toting bandit reportedly displayed the silver handgun.
Seconds after being provided with an undisclosed amount of currency, it was noted, the duo fled from the scene on foot; they were last observed heading westbound on Gates Avenue.
Members of the 104th Precinct responded to the location after receiving a call of the incident. There were no injuries.
Various police units canvassed the surrounding area for the bandits, but despite all efforts, no immediate arrests were made, authorities noted.
The case was presented to the 104th Precinct Detective Squad for further investigation, police said.
Anyone with any information regarding the heist that could prove helpful is asked to call the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 1-718- 386-2735; all calls will be kept strictly confidential.
