BAYSIDE — Police were trying to identify three suspects they said robbed a 7-Eleven in Bayside with a shotgun.
The NYPD said three men, wearing all black with gloves, entered the store, at 218-01 Northern Blvd., around 3:10 a.m. Tuesday and demanded the clerk open the register.
The suspects took $600 in cash before taking a second clerk to the office and telling him to open the safe, which the employee said he could not do, the NYPD said.
Police said the suspects, one armed with a shotgun and the others with pistols, took both employees’ backpacks containing personal property before fleeing on foot west down Northern Boulevard.
The men are described as being between 20 and 25 and weighing approximately 170 pounds, police said.
