From the Daily News:
Cops are looking for a group of armed bandits responsible for eight robberies in Jamaica recently - all pulled off in the evening before the 10 o'clock news.
The robbers struck in groups of two to five over about three weeks, police said.
They hit seven bodegas - one store twice - and left with cash and cigarettes. They also brutally pummeled a customer in one of the stores.
"They're probably just a bunch of neighborhood kids who strike at the right time," said John Malone, a Queens robbery detective. "They're very haphazard."
Police have made one arrest after five men stole $1,200 from the cash register and $3,600 from an employee at Deli Express, 109-18 Sutphin Blvd., on Jan. 18, according to the criminal complaint.
