NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police on Tuesday were asking the public to help them find two suspects who held up a video game store at gunpoint in Marble Hill.
Around 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, a suspect walked into the GameStop Store at 90 W. 225th St. in Marble Hill, which is politically part of Manhattan, but geographically in the Bronx. A second suspect stayed outside and acted as a lookout, police said.
