Men Force Employee, 25, Into Back Room at Gunpoint in Cellphone Store Robbery: NYPD

Three men forced a 25-year-old employee into a back room at gunpoint during a cellphone store robbery Saturday in Brooklyn, police said.

The employee was told to kneel down and not turn around as three men robbed the AT&T store on 7th Avenue in Park Slope around 10:30 a.m., according to the NYPD.

As two of the men were in the back room, a third man locked the front door and started taking merchandise from the store, police said. The first two suspects later joined the third in taking items from the store before the trio fled with more than 50 phones and tablets.

Police say they’re looking for three men who are between 20 and 25-years-old. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
