Dec. 2, 2019 By Allie Griffin

Police are searching for a man who robbed an Astoria deli last month and took off with hundreds of dollars in cash.

The man stole $750 from Aan Deli Grocery, located at 35-14 28 Ave., on Nov. 20, police said.

The suspect walked into the store around 6:10 p.m., while simulating a firearm in his jacket pocket. He then went behind the counter and demanded money from a 48-year-old employee. He took off with the cash, fleeing westbound on 28th Avenue, police said.
