Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Syracuse Police are On The Lookout after a terrifying robbery was caught on tape at a market on the North Side.
Police say two masked men armed with a gun entered Mike's Market at 423 East Division St. at about 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
“Immediately pointed a handgun at the store clerk, came right over the counter and took over the store for all intensive purposes,” said Sergeant Tom Connellan with the Syracuse Police Department.
Footage shows the suspects grabbing cash from the register and forcing the clerk to stay down, with a gun pointed at him.
“Another employee came out from the back, they immediately pointed a gun at that person,” Sgt. Connellan said. “Really we're lucky this wasn't a lot worse than it was.”
One of the suspect’s jacket stands out as it's one of the newer Syracuse University basketball jackets that just came out in the past year. He is also seen wearing what is called “duck boots.”
“These are two very dangerous people, who could cause trouble if they do it again,” Sgt. Connellan said. “People may have seen them fleeing the area, or maybe saw them get into a car down the street, or into a house. That's all important information.”
If you have any information that can help detectives locate the suspects, you are urged to call (315) 442-5222.
