View Comments ()



    A robber slashed two security guards with an ice pick as he tried to get away with stolen merchandise at a Queens children's uniform department store, police say.

    The suspect was trying to leave the Cookie's Kids school uniform store in Jamaica with the stolen items Monday evening when the security alarm rang, according to police.

    A security guard approached the suspect and tried to restrain him when the suspect pulled out an ice pick and hit him in the lip with it, police said. A second guard ran over to help, and the suspect stabbed in the left arm.

    The robber then ran away.

    Neither of the guards were hospitalized, and both are expected to be OK, police said.

    Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
