Cellphone store robbed for 2nd time in 2 months

A Boost Mobile store in Woodlawn was robbed Sunday morning for the second time in two months.



An employee says she was opening the store at around 10 a.m. when a man wearing a mask came up behind her, forced his way inside, and told her to stand still in a corner.



The unidentified suspect made off with cash, computers, hard drives and other property worth about $10,000 total, a store manager said.



The store, located on the corner of 233rd Street and White Plains Road, was previously robbed on Nov. 6 by an armed man wearing a black mask and black hoodie.



It's unclear whether the two incidents are related.



The store is equipped with surveillance cameras, but the suspect took all the hard drives and some computers so police have been unable to look at the footage.
