The NYPD was searching for a knife-wielding man who entered a Polish delicatessen in Ridgewood Saturday demanding cash. The suspect brandished the weapon at a 41-year-old woman who works at Polskie Deli Krajan at 690 Woodward Ave. and told the suspect “we have no money,” according to the NYPD.

The man left the premises heading westbound on foot. There were no injuries, police said.

The man is described as Hispanic, between 20 and 25 years old, 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds. Police said he has brown eyes and a tan complexion with short curly black hair.

He was last seen wearing a gray jacket and white T-shirt with black sneakers with green laces. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
