2 men pose as Fedex workers, robbed electronics store at gunpoint

One of the suspects who was holding a gun pushed the owner to the back of the shop

The incident took place around 7:30 a.m. on April 21 as the 74-year-old owner was opening up his electronics store on Canal and Mercer Street. The thieves posing as FedEx workers approached the owner and claimed they had a package to deliver.

Once they were inside the store, one of the suspects who was holding a gun pushed the owner to the back of the shop, where they demanded he open the door to a safe.


The suspects then tells the owner to be quiet and rushes him to open the safe.


“Open the door. You want your granddaughter to be hurt when she comes back from school? Open the door. Be quiet. You don’t want anyone to hear you,” one of the suspects says.

Moments later, the owner’s 72-year-old wife can be seen arriving at the store. When she realizes something is wrong, she tries to walk out before she is pulled back in and dragged on the ground by one of the men.


As she screams for help, two individuals appear at the store’s entrance. Both suspects then escape by walking out of the store and running in separate directions.

Although they did not get into the safe, they managed to steal $1,500 in cash from the owner’s wallet.
