Barbarians Hold Up Penny Ridge

department-patch-i.jpgThe 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.

    PT – Aside from this comment being off-topic, we’ve found that JtH has really hit its stride lately. We also have much respect for the fact that the JtH folks are REAL RESTAURANTEURS and actually strive to create great dishes, unlike other recently opened establishments.
