Cops are hunting for a gun-toting nogoodnik who went on a robbery spree in Flatlands and Sheepshead Bay on July 20.

The 5-foot-9, 220-pound baddie walked into a 7-Eleven on Utica Avenue between Avenues N and O at about 1:30 am, brandished a gun, and demanded the employee cough up the cash in register, according to authorities. The mask-wearing malefactor fled on foot towards Avenue O with about $1,500 in his pockets, officials said.

And later that night, the same knave hopped behind the register at a Coney Island Avenue gas station between Avenues T and U at about 2:45 am, displayed his firearm, and demanded the employee empty out the cash, according to authorities. The good-for-nothing fled on foot on Avenue T with about $600 in cash, officials said.

The punk was last seen wearing a dark blue, long sleeve T-shirt with the number “72” on the front, blue jeans, and a black ski mask, police said.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
