"two assailants, described only as being in their 20s and approximately 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 and weighing about 150 pounds"

Police didn't provide any ethnic desription? I very much doubt it. Newsday loves to avoid the uncomfotable of ethnicity and crime. It's their official policy.
If the police are doing it now too, God help us.

Why do idiots rob bodegas with guns when they could walk into a bank with a note and get alot more money? Not to mention it is not an armed robbery if you use a note and don't actually have a weapon.

Really? Did the clerk whip out a scale and then forget to notice if they were white; Spanish, or black!

Why do I find that hard to believe, Loserday?????

wait - one pointed the gun while the other grabbed the money. so look for a pointer and a retriever. i'll start at the pet store, you guys fan out and check the pound and stake out the fire hydrants.
