The woman approached a display featuring the whiskey and allegedly placed three bottles of the cinnamon-flavored liquor into her bag before she tried to walk out.

That’s when the store clerk confronted the woman, who responded by pulling out what police said was a switchblade knife.

The clerk relented and the woman fled. Authorities said no one was hurt and only the three bottles were taken from the store.

Investigators described the suspect as a black woman in her 20s, standing at about 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighing 120 pounds.

Cops ask that anyone with information about the robbery or suspect confidentially call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or text their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
