Police are seeking two suspects in a series of East Village armed street robberies.
Two of the incidents occurred on Mon., June 27. At 4:20 a.m. the robbers, one wielding a handgun, held up a man, 29, on E. Seventh St. across from Tompkins Square Park, demanded his property and fled on foot west with it. At 4:40 a.m. the two robbers stopped a woman, 20, opposite 510 E. 11th St. between Avenues A and B, and fled west with her cell phone and wallet.
On Wed., July 6, the two suspects held up two women on E. 11th St. near Avenue B and demanded their handbags. When the victims held onto their bags, the suspects punched them in the face and managed to make off with one of the bags containing $200, credit cards, a cell phone and a digital camera.

As of this afternoon, Friday, just in time for weekend business. Maybe they jut happened to get all 99 points finished, and managed to get an inspector to come and peel off the sticker closing it … but that is unlikely. This afternoon, no sticker on the door, but the gates were down. But they are open and doing business at 6Pm today.
