Armed gunmen rob Dunkin’ Donuts

Sur­veil­lance photo

A man walked in­to a Lower North­east Dunkin’ Donuts last month wear­ing a white sur­gic­al mask, but it wasn’t be­cause he’s a ger­mo­phobe. He and an ac­com­plice each had guns and robbed the shop.

The hold-up oc­curred on Jan. 21 at 813 Adams Ave. The crooks burst in­to the busi­ness at about 2:13 p.m. with pis­tols drawn. One of the gun­men held an em­ploy­ee at bay while an­oth­er pulled out a plastic bag and de­man­ded money from the cash re­gister.

Mo­ments later, the second rob­ber forced the man­ager to a rear of­fice where he stole a bank de­pos­it bag and cash from a safe. The crooks then ex­ited the shop through a rear door, flee­ing in an un­known dir­ec­tion.

The guy with the sur­gic­al mask was de­scribed as black, between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall, weigh­ing 240 to 250 pounds. He has a light com­plex­ion and also wore a black zip-up hood­ie, along with blue jeans. The second crook was de­scribed as black, about 6 feet tall and thin with a light com­plex­ion, a knit mask over his face, a black hood­ie and black pants.
