Check-cashing business reopens after armed robbery

A Bronx check-cashing store reopened today after a violent armored car robbery yesterday, where two suspects allegedly got away with $100,000.

According to the FBI, the robbers, one of whom was armed, followed a Rapid Armored guard making a cash delivery to David's Check Cashing on 3rd Avenue at around 8 a.m. The suspects demanded money and Maced the guard, but he managed to fire his gun as they were getting away.

Investigators say one of the suspects is a man in his 50s, about 6 feet tall with a slim build and graying facial hair. The other suspect is a man in his 40s, clean-shaven, and he was last seen wearing an MTA vest.

The FBI says a significant award is being offered for information leading to the suspects' arrests. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 212-384-1000, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
