2 Robbers Armed With Batteries Threaten to Blow up Pay-O-Matic: NYPD

Two robbers armed with a mysterious liquid and batteries charged into a Brooklyn check-cashing location and threatened to blow it up, police say. 

On Tuesday afternoon, one of the men passed a note demanding cash to a 43-year-old employee at the Pay-O-Matic on Bushwick Avenue.

The second man then took out an unknown liquid and started spraying it through a glass partition. He then threw batteries wrapped in tape at the glass, according to police.

Despite the suspects’ threats to set fire to the shop and then blow it up, the employee refused to hand over any cash and the men took off empty-handed.

Police said the suspects are in their mid-20s or early 30s.
