Two Men Brandish Knife While Shoplifting M&Ms from Hell Square CVS
The brand new Lower East Side CVS got a Hell Square scare this past Sunday, when it was reportedly robbed at knifepoint.
Shortly before 1:30 am Sunday morning, two men entered the pharmacy – located inside Ben Shaoul’s condoplex at 196 Orchard Street – and began to shoplift a bag of M&Ms. According to police, an employee confronted the duo – aged 19 and 27 – demanding they return the candy to the shelf. At that point, one of the perps brandished a knife.
Both were arrested shortly thereafter.
