A pair of Upper West Side businesses were recently burglarized along West End Avenue, police said on Friday.
About 2:35 a.m. on November 27, a man forcibly pulled open a door at 75 West End Avenue, which is the address of the gourmet grocery Brooklyn Fare, before grabbing unspecified electronic devices and fleeing the scene, police said.
Around an hour later that same night, a man entered a nearby store at 35 West End Avenue, and removed roughly $600 from two cash registers, before fleeing, police said. Both the La Salle Dumpling Room and Friedman’s West are located at the address, but it is unclear which was burglarized.
The burglarized businesses are located along the same stretch of West End Avenue, at West 61st and 63rd streets, respectively.
NYPD released a photo of the man wanted in connection with the two burglaries.
Anyone with information in regard to these incidents is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
