Brighton Beach Laundromat Robbed at Gunpoint
BRIGHTON BEACH — A 24-hour laundromat was robbed at gunpoint in Brighton Beach.
On Tuesday, December 17, around 2:15 a.m., Glady’s Laundromat and Dry Cleaners located at 412 Brighton Beach Avenue was robbed of approximately $500, cops said.
That night, an unidentified man, wearing a black mask, black hoodie, and black Nike sweatpants, entered the laundromat and displayed a silver firearm — cops did not know the model of the gun.
“Open the drawer and give me the money!” he told the 32-year-old female store employee, as he pointed the gun at her, and then shoved her into the counter before forcibly removing approximately $500 dollars from the cash register drawer.
The individual then fled on foot northbound on Brighton 4th Street. There were no injuries reported as a result of this incident.
When Bklyner reached Glady’s Laundromat and Dry Cleaners over the phone, the employee declined to comment.
