Dec. 16, 2020 By Allie Griffin

The police are looking for four men who allegedly robbed an Astoria gas station Saturday night.

The men entered the Mobil Gas Station, located at 43-07 Astoria, at around 7 p.m. and then went inside the convenience store and robbed the premises.

Three of the four suspects jumped over the service counter and then pushed a 60-year-old worker aside, before taking the cash register and the employee’s phone. One of the men then opened the cash register by slamming it on the floor.

All four suspects then took $600 that was inside the register. The men then fled the scene on foot northbound on 43rd Street.

The NYPD released photos and video of the suspects.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident 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. All calls are strictly confidential.
