NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police late Sunday were searching for two men who robbed a bodega in Brooklyn last week.
Surveillance video from Aug. 2 shows the two men walk up to a bodega on Jefferson Avenue at Marcus Garvey Boulevard in Bedford-Stuyvesant. As they enter, they pull masks over their faces.
Owner Abdur Razu was working at the deli when the robbery happened just before 6 p.m.
“There was three person inside the store. Everybody – we hid behind the counter,” Razu said.
Cameras follow the alleged bandits inside where one of the men jumps over the counter to remove cash from the register.
“They said: ‘Whatever you have, give everything. Otherwise, we’re going to kill you,’” Razu said.
The second man pulls out a gun and orders the bodega worker to the ground, threatening to shoot him.

“Everybody is scared,” Razu said. “We don’t want it to happen like that no more.”
