Nov. 29, 2019 By Kristen Torres

Two men tried to rob a Walgreens in Astoria at gunpoint on Wednesday, police said.

The incident began around 3:30 a.m. inside the Walgreens located at 47-07 Broadway.

According to police, one of the men attempted to sneak out of the store’s back exit with two containers of laundry detergent but was confronted by an employee.

A second man then entered the store and threatened the employee while brandishing a gun. Police released a photo of this man as well as video.

The two men then fled down Broadway. Nothing was stolen from the store and there were no injuries, according to police.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects.

Anyone with information in regard to the identities of the males is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Our socialists are pleased they’re constituents are free from police contact. Well done!

I agree, Trump lovers lack basic grammar skills

Thanks for not challenging that. Calling me names was a great argument though.


Omg, terrible. So many people go to that store; it’s so convenient being open 24 hours.The staff is great. They don’t need this.I thought they have a security guard.


So glad I got out.$2700 on a one bedroom to be close to the city but closer to the projects. Makes sense..
