MANHATTAN - Cops are looking for a robbery crew, they say, hit four commercial establishments throughout Manhattan. Multiple getaway cars were used in the robbery spree.

At around 4 pm on May 23, four men entered a commercial establishment at 90 West Houston Street. Cops said one of the crew members simulated having a handgun under his sweater and demanded that the 19-year-old hand over property. The other three robbers then reached over the counter and removed $1,400 worth of merchandise, cops said.

Then the crew fled the store and hopped into a dark colored Honda Sedan.

At around 3 am on April 30, two men entered a store at 423 9th Avenue. Cops said one of the men pulled out a gun and removed merchandise. They also removed a watch from the 24-year-old worker. They then ran out of the store and into a white four door sedan. Cops say the items stolen were valued at $4,170.

At around 4:20 am on May 12, the crew robbed another store with a gun and a knife. According to investigators, four of the crew walked into the store at 390 8th Avenue. One of the suspects pulled out a gun and the other displayed a knife at the 22-year-old employee. The crooks took $700 in cash out of the register and stole merchandise valued at $6,500.

Cops said they fled in a red Hyundai Sonata.

At around 4 am on May 19, four of the suspects walked into a store on West 29th Street. Cops said one of the men simulated having a gun and threatened the 19-year-old worker. The crew removed $800 cash, merchandise and a cell phone before fleeing in a black Kia Soul. Cops said the property stolen is valued at $7,500.

No injuries were reported in any of the three additional cases.
