Three men robbed a grocery store on Ditmars Boulevard this morning taking $600 in cash, according to police.
Two of the perpetrators entered Ditmars Candy & Grocery, located at 28-05 Ditmars Blvd, at about 9 am while a third man came in shortly after and blocked the door, police said.
The bodega owner, upon realizing what was happening, ran from behind the counter and tried to get out the front door, according to police. While heading out the store, one of the alleged perpetrators grabbed him by the shirt and took $500 from his left pants pocket.
The victim, 35, was able to get out the front door. Meanwhile the suspects, believed to be three black men in their 30s, exited via a back door. They allegedly took $100 from the register.
No arrest have been made and the victim was uninjured, police said.
