The police have released a photo of one of a number of suspects wanted in connection to a robbery inside an electronics store at the SkyView Center last week.
On Monday, March 9, at around 1:40 p.m., a 14-year-old boy was inside Best Buy, located at 131-07 40th Road, when a group of men lured him onto a staircase.
The men then punched him in the head and he fell to the ground.
The perpetrators then removed the victim’s cell phone and ear pods before fleeing in an unknown direction, police said.
The victim was not seriously injured and did not require medical attention.
Police have released a photograph of one of the suspects. He is wanted for questioning.
