Armed Robbers Terrorize Brooklyn Supermarkets — and a Chicken Joint


A three-man crew of armed robbers is still on the loose in and around Brownsville in Brooklyn after sticking up three supermarkets and a chicken joint last month.

Call them armed, dangerous and hungry. And call the cops if you know anything.

Here are the details:

On December 3, they flashed firearms at a C-Town at 146 East 98th Street at about 6:15 p.m. and snatched money from three cash registers.

On December 18, they strolled into a Key Food at 4209 Avenue D at about 3:35 p.m., flashed firearms and grabbed money from two registers and a safe.

On December 21, about 8:30 p.m., they entered Danny’s Jerk Chicken restaurant, 778 Lenox Road, showed their guns, robbed a 60-year-old male customer, and snatched cash from a register.

On December 27, at about 7 p.m., they entered another Key Food, this one at 9530 Church Avenue, showed their firearms, and swiped money from a register. While they were at it, one of the thugs also smacked a 37-year-old male store employee in the head with a gun, drawing blood.

The three scumbags are described as black males, all about 5-10 to 6-1 and weighing about 170 pounds.

Tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips at or text info to 274637 (CRIMES), entering TIP577.
