The NYPD has released surveillance footage of three armed suspects wanted for robbing four businesses in Queens and Brooklyn of more than $85,000.
The video is from the latest incident, on Jan. 8, when three people wearing hoods and masks entered Joanie’s Princess Card and Cash Checkers at 90-45A 148 St. in Queens. Two suspects, including one armed with a gun, climbed over a security partition, while the third held a knife and watched the door, police said.
The unidentified owner of the store told NBC4 that his wife was behind the counter at the time of the robbery and was pistol-whipped, a wound that required 10 stitches to close.
The suspects took $65,600 in cash from Joanie’s before fleeing, police said.
They believe the suspects are also behind three recent armed robberies of Brooklyn businesses over the last month:
9108 Flatlands Ave.
According to police, two individuals, one of whom was armed, made off with $4,000 in cash from CAM-Caribbean Airmail in Canarsie on Dec. 17.
1439 Flatbush Ave.
Two people entered Caribbean Airmail on Dec. 23 and while one acted as lookout, an armed suspect demanded money from two employees. The suspects fled after taking $3,600 in cash, police said.
9601 Glenwood Road
On Dec. 29, two individuals robbed Postal Express in Canarsie of $14,600 after one of them pointed a firearm at an employee’s head, police said.
