Police Release Video Of Thieves Who Robbed Borough Park Office At Gunpoint



Police are asking for help in locating two suspects wanted for a daytime armed robbery a Borough Park office last week.

The suspects entered Roth Roofing, located in the basement of an apartment building on 1163 50th Street, on November 3 at 4:20pm and robbed the business owner and his employee, cops said.

One of the thieves pulled out a silver handgun and ordered the two victims to get on the ground, according to police, who add the suspects then rummaged through the office and demanded money, collecting $2,030 in cash and two phones — a BlackBerry and an LG flip phone — before fleeing on foot. The victims were not injured.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5 feet 10 inches, 170 pounds, with a bald head. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black face mask.
