Two masked men who held up a gas station attendant at gunpoint in Maspeth earlier this week are still on the lam.

According to police, the heist took place at 4:38 a.m. on Oct. 24 at the Gas Trac station located at 60-93 Flushing Ave.

Law enforcement sources said the two thieves — both described as white males standing about 5 foot 10 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds — approached a 49-year-old male clerk at the station’s booth.

One of the suspects, who wore a gray shirt, a green hooded sweatshirt, a black ski mask and blue jeans, displayed a black firearm and yelled, “Give me the f***ing money!” Police said the other crook, who wore a black ski mask, a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, removed $1,100 from the clerk.

The thieves then fled the scene on foot westbound along Flushing Avenue, authorities noted. Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to the incident.

Captain John Mastronardi, the precinct’s commander, posted a wanted flyer on the 104th Precinct Twitter page with images showing the robbery in progress.


Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the suspects’ whereabouts can call Detective Christopher Gerardi of the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723; all calls are kept confidential.
