Big man. Big score.
Cops are looking for a suspect with a “heavy build” who is wanted in connection with the violent robbery of a Richmond Hill dry cleaning establishment earlier this month.
On Sunday, June 5, around 10:55 p.m., the man entered the store on Jamaica Avenue and immediately threw the 58-year-old female employee down to the floor. He then proceeded to kick the victim multiple times before removing $3,000 in cash from her person and fleeing the business in an unkown direction.
Paramedics rushed the victim to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, cops said, where she received treatment for a facial fracture and swollen lip.
The suspect has been described as a Hispanic man, roughly 300 pounds, with tattoos on one arm. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat and white sneakers.
