Some lowlife in a football jersey with “Peppers” written on the back pretended to pull a gun on an employee at a Williamsburg fast-food joint before robbing the eatery on Sunday, police said.

The brute walked into the Chicken Express on Broadway between Lorimer and Walton streets around 10:30 am, before approaching the worker with his hand beneath the shirt to simulate a pistol and demanding cash, according to cops, who said the jerk never showed an actual firearm during the incident.

The employee handed over $80 from the register, $150 from a lock box, and $180 from his own wallet, and the thief fled towards Union Avenue on foot in his orange sports garb emblazoned with the number 90.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked 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. All tips are strictly confidential.

Reach Deputy Editor Anthony Rotunno at or by calling (718) 260-8303.
