Police: Prospect Ave. bodega robbed at gunpoint

The NYPD is searching for two men wanted for allegedly robbing a convenience store on Prospect Avenue.



Police say the suspects, brandishing guns, burst into the Barena Grocery and Tobacco shop on the night of Nov. 23.



The store's owner, Mohammed Lamrobot, says the men took two drinks and cash from the register. He also says this is the third time his store has been robbed.



In surveillance video, a store clerk can be seen struggling with one of the suspects, while the other is behind the counter allegedly stealing money.



News 12 is told the clerk suffered a cut to his forehead when one of the suspects struck him with his gun.
