Police are searching for two men who robbed customers at gunpoint outside an Astoria coffee shop Tuesday.

The armed robbery took place outside Under Pressure Espresso Bar, located at 30-92 31st St., at around 3:20 p.m., according to police and a worker at the store.

The suspects, who were on a motorcycle and dressed in black, pulled up outside the establishment and displayed a gun in front of several customers who were sitting outside the cafe, according to police and sources. A Reddit user was first to report the robbery.

The pair then robbed at least two customers of jewelry and watches, according to Patch.

The suspects then fled the scene on the bike northbound on 31st Street, according to sources.

Police said that no injuries were reported.

Such is life these days as everyone has to make these events political. For the anonymous person who felt “ from privileged people who get to drink coffee at 3:30 in the afternoon instead of being at work.” this way. I guess you don’t know that many people have days off during the week as they need to work weekends. Many people also work late hours and may start their days late morning/early afternoon. So unless you know these people personally you should save your judgement for things you know of.

If crime continues to rise in Astoria, I’m moving.
When these two dummies are caught, NO BAIL, JUST JAIL.

Ouch. Pretty close to home. Very lucky no one was injured. Don’t tell us they need mental health therapy, Tiffany.

Kickback Kathy needs to be voted out! Adams (closeted Friend of Dorothy) and half his administration will probably be indicted by mid-term.

Stop electing dangerous Democrats ad nauseum!

Tiffany Caban is a socialist carpet baggers hack who would have given these low lifes a pat on the wrist with no bail and community service if she was the Queens DA. Maybe she can whip out her ol’ manifesto she wrote a year ago and offer mediation to both parties so the victims can better understand what made these two fine upstanding citizens turn to a life of borrowing goods and property from privileged people who get to drink coffee at 3:30 in the afternoon instead of being at work.

In a time of rampant economic inequality and environmental injustice, it is easy to feel defeated.  Here in Queens and across New York State, however, communities are organizing for a better future. New Yorkers from different backgrounds and with different lived experiences are proving that we can build community, organize, and create a future that reflects our shared values.
