A gun-toting duo threatened an 18-year-old woman and robbed a smoke shop Tuesday night on the Upper West Side, a police spokesperson confirmed to West Side Rag.
Two men walked into Columbus Exotics at 945 Columbus Avenue, between West 106th and 107th streets, about 10:40 p.m. and demanded money and marijuana from the 18-year-old woman who was working within the store at the time, police said.
At least one of the men flashed a gun at the employee, police said.
She handed over cash from the register and the duo fled the store, jumping on a black electric bike and speeding off in an unknown direction, police said. It is unclear if they also got away with stolen weed.
The store employee wasn’t injured in the incident, police said.
NYPD did not have an official description of the suspects as of 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
