Police are searching for a man who used an ice pick to rob an Astoria Rite Aid.

The suspect entered the Rite Aid, located at 47-07 Broadway, on October 28th at 5:10 am, and stole a Craig Bluetooth and two Craig Bluetooth speakers from the shelves, according to police.

The security guard attempted to stop the suspect, who then pulled out an ice pick from his jacket, pointed it at the guard and exited the store with the items, according to the NYPD.

The suspect then jumped on a bicycle and fled the location heading westbound on Broadway.



There were no reported injuries.

Police released surveillance video of the suspect, who is described as a black male, 6-foot, 210 pounds. He was last seen wearing a leather jacket and light colored pants.

Police are asking anyone with any information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
