Astoria Bodega Robbed at Gunpoint: NYPD

Suspect (NYPD) and deli (Google)

Dec. 30, 2019 By Allie Griffin

An Astoria bodega was robbed at gunpoint Friday and police are looking for the suspect.

The suspect entered Noor Deli Grocery, located at 38-02 31st St., on Dec. 27 at 6:44 p.m. and approached a 58-year-old male employee who was standing at the register. The male suspect displayed a firearm and demanded money and the employee’s wallet, police said.

He ran off with about $100 from the register in an unknown direction, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this individual is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Where is the coverage about the drive by shooting that happened on Steinway street last week?? Is that bad publicity for the neighborhood?

Please raise my rent again to live in this shithole. I can’t imagine not paying 3k for a dump apt in the hood. I mean it’s beautiful. I can’t park for the love of God. I’m lucky to meet someone who speaks English, I get harassed on the NYC subway and Ubers double park all over picking their noses and hacking snot balls near foodstands. Please raise my rent.. I’m only 5 blocks from the projects in my 3k apt!! Life is wonderful

Imagine being this fragile!

Oh no, someone spoke another language! Damn that diversity. You should move to a Republican paradise like Alabama. They have teenage pregnancy instead of diversity.

You might find this hard to believe but, Astoria was once right leaning. It’s going down the drain fast.The illegals can have it.

I agree, the Trump lovers are really fragile

Something like being offended by hearing Spanish is the kind of thing we’d expect from the right, like the people that lived in Astoria. Thanks for agreeing with me.

I’m a registered Independent, not a Trump lover. Making a point of how life was better in Astoria years ago.How would you know what Astoria was like if you were living somewhere else?My comment has nothing to do with my politics, just stating facts.

Anyone who says Astoria hasn’t changed for the worst is either deceiving themselves or ignorant to the reality that has taken place the past 3 to 5 years.

Criminals are more brazen thanks to the new criminal reform laws. NYC is slowly but surely turning back to the grimy 70’s and 80’s
