Police Hunting Duo for Attempted Robbery at Delancey Duane Reade
The Duane Reade that Lady Gaga allegedly frequents for Blockbuster movies was a crime scene Friday night. At roughly 11 pm, two armed men described as in their forties, entered the corner pharmacy at 100 Delancey Street (Ludlow) and demanded money from the cashier at gunpoint.
When the brave 21-year-old employee refused to relinquish any funds, police say one of the bandits told the other, “shoot her.” The suspect fired a shot, but missed. They subsequently fled the scene and are now wanted for attempted armed robbery.
NYPD describes the suspects as between the ages 40 – 45. One is believed to be approximately 5-foot-9-inches, with salt-and-pepper hair, a mustache and goatee. Surveillance tape shows him wearing a blue short sleeved jacket and white sneakers. The other criminal had short dark hair and was last seen wearing a blue cap with white symbol, and a black jacket with white shirt underneath.
