Bandit Goes Ballistic At R’wood Eatery
A Brooklyn man remains locked up on high bail for allegedly attempting to rob a Ridgewood fast food eatery last Tuesday night, Jan. 28, law enforcement sources said.
Police identified the suspect as 28-year-old Alexis Heredia of Throop Avenue in Bedford- Stuyvesant.
Reportedly, the trouble began at about 3:10 a.m. last Tuesday morning at the McDonald’s restaurant located at 54-04 Myrtle Ave.
According to information provided by the Queens District Attorney’s office, Heredia allegedly entered the location, approached the counter and asked to see the night manager.
When a female clerk behind the counter claimed the manager was not there, authorities said, Heredia allegedly opened his jacket, displayed what appeared to be a knife handle in his waistband and demanded property.
Police stated the suspect then allegedly climbed over the counter and threw a cash register.
Within minutes of the robbery attempt, officers from the 104th Precinct rushed to the scene and took Heredia into custody.
During a search, officers found three bags containing various quantities of marijuana in Heredia’s possession.
P.O. Jasper Fenton charged Heredia with first-degree attempted robbery, second-degree menacing, fourth-degree criminal mischief and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Court records indicated the suspect was arraigned later that day in Queens Criminal Court before Judge Donna Golia, who ordered him held on $30,000 bail. Heredia is scheduled to return to court on Feb. 11.
