Thirsty Customer Robs 7-Eleven on Delancey Street
A customer of the Delancey Street 7-Eleven robbed the store after not having enough cash for beer, police said.
Early yesterday morning, a thirsty crook came up to the counter to pay for a few beers, then stole them anyway. He only had $5 and refused to pay for the other groceries. The suspect then jumped the register to take back the money and the booze with force, and also knocked the phone out of another worker’s hands.
The employee tried to stop the thirsty robber from leaving the store with the unpaid items, but was unsuccessful.
Police describe the perp as an African American male standing six feet tall and weighing about 200 lbs.
