    The NYPD is looking for a man who robbed a Park Slope convenience store at gunpoint earlier this week.

    Police say the suspect walked into the Fourth Avenue store just before 4:30 a.m. Monday, brandishing a silver firearm.

    Authorities say the gunman told the two employees in the store, "If you want to live, don't do anything." The suspect then ushered them to a storage locker in the back of the shop and warned them not to move.

    The gunman stole an undetermined amount of cash, cigarettes, MetroCards and an iPhone before fleeing in an unknown direction, police say.

    The store employees, ages 18 and 26, were not harmed.

    The suspect is described as being about 6 feet tall, 150 pounds and between the ages of 20 and 25.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be submitted online here
