Stuy Town T-Mobile store robbed at gunpoint

Police are searching for two men who robbed the T-Mobile store on First Avenue near East 19th Street on Sunday afternoon.

Here's some narrative via Town & Village:

While one of them waved a gun around, the men ordered two employees and one male customer into a back room. The suspects then forced an employee to turn over 40 Apple and Samsung phones off a shelf as well as approximately $1500 in cash from a safe.

The NYPD released this surveillance video today... the customer, who is carrying a cane, is made to lie down on the floor while an employee hands over the merchandise and money...

Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You may also submit tips online.

That is some clear surveillance video. They should be able to identify them soon enough. Thank god no one was hurt, that could've easily went the other way.

Creepy scene, it seemed to be calm without any rough stuff, glad nobody was harmed.

Here, let me help out the snarky Grieve posters so we don't clutter the comments. They obviously asked to be robbed at gunpoint by flashing that expensive merchandise around for all to see, and in the east village for goodness sake. No common sense. They must be "bros" or a "millennials"
