Police say that just after 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 4, five suspects — two women and three men — entered the 7-Eleven at 60-31 Metropolitan Ave., within the confines of the 104th Precinct, while one woman remained inside a vehicle outside the location. Once the group was inside the store, one of the men displayed a black firearm while the others snatched a six-pack of Mike’s Hard Lemonade and a Nesquik, valued at $30, police said.
The thieves then exited the store and fled eastbound on Eliot Avenue in a red Toyota Camry, according to authorities.
No injuries were reported as a result of the incident, police said.
Authorities described the thieves as being between the ages of 18 and 25.
Police on Oct. 6 released surveillance video and images of the suspects.
The video shows the Camry parking in front of the 7-Eleven and the suspects entering the store before exiting with the stolen merchandise moments later.
