UPDATE: 7-Eleven Robber On Crime Spree

The crook who robbed a 7-Eleven earlier this week is wanted for hitting up four other businesses across Sheepshead Bay and Gravesend.

News 12 is reporting that the wanted man is cutting a path of crime through the area, robbing bodegas and convenience stores. His first target was a different 7-Eleven located at 133 Avenue U, which he robbed on April 15. Three days later he hit up the Universal Grocery store on the same street, hauling in close to $1,000 according to the store’s owner. He then returned to rob the same 7-Eleven (133 Avenue U) this past Saturday before striking the 7-Eleven located at 2702 Knapp Street in Sheepshead Bay.

The NYPD is doing all they can to nab the thief before he acts again. If you have any information regarding the crime, the NYPD urges you to call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
