Two suspects are on the run after robbing a deli and the patrons inside of it during the breakfast rush in Maspeth on Thursday.

According to police, the two suspects entered a deli in the vicinity of 71st Street and Grand Avenue at approximately 6 a.m. on March 1. Once inside, the individuals displayed firearms and jumped over the counter of the deli.

The suspects then took five patrons of the store to the back of the location and bound them, police said. The perpetrators removed all of the victims’ valuable property including cell phones, credit cards and approximately $700 in cash.

Authorities said the suspects also stole lottery tickets and an unknown amount of money from the cash register.

Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to the incident.

One suspect is described as a black male, while no description was available for the second suspect.

This is a developing story and QNS will provide updates as soon as more information is available.
