A couple of guys hit a 7-11 at Metropolitan Avenue near Continental Avenue in Flushing* around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday. They robbed the store and the clerks. The picture probably isn’t much help. Nonetheless if you have information as to these men or this incident, NYPD asks you to contact 1-800-577-TIPS(8477), www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
*Update: Google Maps says it’s Flushing, but an enraged reader says it’s Forest Hills. Adjust your surveillance accordingly.
