Police have released video of two suspects they say robbed a Bronx pharmacy and asked an employee if he wanted to be shot after he confronted them.
On Feb. 20 at about 3:40 a.m. the suspects entered a Rite Aid Pharmacy at 3480 Jerome Ave, according to authorities. They then took shaving razors from shelves and hid them inside their pants and a book bag.
When a 26-year-old employee confronted the duo, one of the suspects asked him if he wanted to get shot, police said. No weapon was shown and the employee backed off.
The two then fled the store in an unknown direction.
Both suspects are described to be black or Hispanic men, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 170 pounds.
The first suspect was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweater and black jeans, while the other was seen wearing a purple hooded sweater, purple bubble jacket, light-colored pants and had a red book bag on his back.
