BRONX, NEW YORK, JULY 1- Police are trying to catch a Halloween masked hooligan who robbed a gas station outside Co-op City on Tuesday.
At around 3 a.m. on June 30, the suspect used a handgun to stick up the Sunoco gas station at 1945 Bartow Avenue just outside Co-op City. Sporting a Halloween mask and black hoodie, the suspect entered the gas station that sports giant neon signs for “Lottery,” “Beer” and “Cigars.” He waved a handgun at the clerks and demanded cash.
