Police in the 81st Precinct are looking for two men who attempted an armed robbery of a store last Friday on Ralph Avenue in Bed-Stuy.
According to police, on Friday, September 26, at around 12:15pm, two perpetrators entered Bed-Stuy Fly clothing store, located at 287 Ralph Ave., between MacDougal and Sumpter streets.
The perpetrators approached the owner of the store, demanded money, and when the owner refused, a struggle began. One of the robbers fired a shot hitting the owner in the left thigh. The two thugs then fled empty-handed down Ralph Ave, made a left onto Sumpter St and jumped into a waiting car.
The men continued firing shots as they fled, hitting an innocent male across the street from the location in the right foot.
