The Brooklyn Heights Courier reports that a ten year old Heights girl and her mother were threatened at gunpoint when they stumbled upon a robbery at the Penny Ridge store at 82 Clark Street:
Workers at the store said that three black males entered the store at 8 p.m. on January 23 and ordered a sandwich. A few minutes later, one of the thieves pulled a gun and demanded that a worker empty the two registers.
The brutes were pulling the cash from the registers when a 10-year-old girl from Cranberry Street entered the store with her mother.
Almost instinctively, the gunman turned his pistol on the two women, pointing the gun at the 10-year-old’s head, before fleeing the store.
No injuries were reported.
Police said that the gunman made off with $2,100 in receipts.
Help the NYPD put these skells where they belong — in jail. If you have information call Crimestoppers 1-800-577-TIPS.
