Robbers Steal $850 from Koneko Cat Cafe on Clinton Street
Koneko cat cafe on Clinton Street fell victim to a robbery Monday evening, just as workers were closing up for the day, police said.
The bandits entered the premises at roughly 9:30pm. One of the men allegedly thrust his hand into a bag holding what appeared to be a gun, according to a dispatch in the Daily News. The report also noted the following dialogue during the robbery – “You know what this is, give me the money,” the suspect said as his partner acted as a lookout. “Don’t look at me, put the money in the bag.”
An employee acquiesced, and handed the crook $850 from the register.
Koneko opened at 26 Clinton Street in October 2015.
