Suspects Who Robbed Koneko Cat Cafe at Gunpoint Still on the Loose
Cops are still after a pair of robbers who held up Koneko cat cafe at gunpoint earlier this month.
On July 3, both men entered the premises. One of the men allegedly thrust his hand into a bag holding what appeared to be a gun. “You know what this is, give me the money; don’t look at me, put the money in the bag,” one of the suspects said before taking off, according to police.
An employee acquiesced, and handed the crook $850 from the register.
The first suspect is described as a 35-year-old, 5-foot-8 male weighing 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, shorts, and a black jersey with the phrase “Kill Ape” printed on the front. The second man is described as in his 20s and wearing tan shorts and a green t-shirt with skull-and-crossbones logo.
Koneko opened at 26 Clinton Street in October 2015.
