According to one police source, “A male suspect passed a note, displayed a firearm and demanded cash. The suspect then fled the location without cash.”

At the time of the incident, officers from the 49th Precinct were looking for a suspect described as a male black, 5-feet, 6-inches tall and wearing a black jacket and a red hat. The suspect was reportedly carrying a T-Mobile bag, who fled northbound towards the Pelham Parkway Houses.

According to the NYPD, Police are also still looking for the reported armed gunman who stuck up the Dunkin’ Donuts, located at 2148 White Plains Road at 10:06 a.m. on April 27. That suspect was only described as a black male.

However, a manager of the Dunkin’ Donuts stated police came to his store and posted a wanted flyer of the suspect on their front window. The unidentified manager claimed a Dunkin’ Donuts located 2200 White Plains Road was actually the business that got held-up, but that could not immediately be verified.
