Police are on the hunt for two men wanted for a string of armed robberies at three local delis, including A & H Deli at 1202 Avenue Z, which they visited at least three times.
The incidents happened between the beginning of October up until this past Sunday, and most of the attempts have been in Sheepshead Bay, while another was robbed in Coney Island.
The first incident happened around 3 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5, at the A.H. & F Grocery store at 2811 Ocean Ave. Three men stormed in, flashed a gun, tied up the clerk and took cartons of cigarettes.
On Tuesday, Oct. 22 around 3:30 a.m., one robber struck again at the A & H Deli at 1202 Avenue Z. He flashed a gun and took money and cigarettes.
On Saturday, Nov. 16 shortly before 4 a.m., a lone robber again showed up at A & H Deli and banged on the glass door. But he walked away empty-handed.
Around the very same time on the same day, another lone robber struck the Shop and Smile Bodega at 51 Neptune Ave. He flashed a handgun and took money and cigarettes.
And on Sunday, Nov. 24, a lone suspect returned yet again to the A & H Deli on Avenue Z, walking in and leaving. A second man tried to get in, but was stopped by the clerk, police said.
A & H deli caputred video of the latest attempt, which you can see above.
