Marshalls LES Robbed by Man Brandishing a Needle
The two-year-old Marshalls on the Lower East Side was robbed by a syringe-wielding man last week, cops said.
The man, thought to be in his mid-20s, entered the store at 197 East Houston last Thursday night (October 10) shortly after 10:00pm.
The perp was reportedly caught shoplifting, then confronted by the store manager. That’s when he brandished a needle, making off with some $400 worth of merchandise, including New Balance sneakers, four pairs of True Religion jeans, and a Lacoste sweater.
Police are looking for the suspect, described as a mid-20s white or Hispanic male wearing purple mask, gray hoodie, and dark jeans.
It’s worth noting that this department store is located in the luxury condo building developed by Ben Shaoul, and completed two years ago.
