A suspect robbed the Glen Oaks cell phone store pictured above at gunpoint this week

Police are looking for an armed suspect who swiped dozens of cell phones from a store in Glen Oaks on Thursday morning.

On April 12 at around 10:40 a.m., an unidentified man entered a Verizon Wireless retail store at 253-25 Union Tpke., pulled a black firearm from his pants and forced a 24-year-old male employee into the rear of the store, according to law enforcement sources.

The suspect demanded the employee open a safe, to which he complied. The perpetrator then removed 60 Samsung and Apple phones, placed them into a laundry bag and fled the scene in a black Toyota Avalon in an unknown direction. There were no injuries reported.

The incident was reported to the 105th Precinct. The investigation is ongoing, and there have been no arrests.

Authorities described the suspect as a white male last seen wearing a face mask.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
