Police Search for 2 Suspects in Armed Robbery at Montrose Gas Station

The BP Mart on Albany Post Road was robbed today, just before 1 a.m., according to state police investigators.

State police are searching for two men who committed an armed robbery at the BP Mart on 2030 Albany Post Road in Montrose today, shortly before  1 a.m.

The robbery took place at about 12:49 a.m when two men entered the store and pistol whipped the store clerk several times with a handgun, according to investigators. The suspects then took an undetermined amount of cash and cigarettes before fleeing the scene.

The men were last seen running north, toward Maiden Lane.

The store clerk was treated at the Hudson Valley Hospital Center for injuries to his head and face. He was later released from the hospital.

Police described the suspects as two black men. One of the men wore a dark-colored, bubble winter type jacket with blue jeans and sneakers. The other suspect wore a dark-colored, hoodie type jacket with blue jeans and sneakers.

The robbers used hoods and ski masks to their faces, according to police. Police ask anyone with information to call them at  914-737-7171.  All calls will be kept confidential.

Bet you a week's salary these two miscreants are not on the JN's published list of legal pistol permit holders. Hope the store clerk recovers quickly.

entertainer seriously???? lets see get pistal whipped for what??? wow what would your basis be for that comment?
The Entertainer December 28, 2012 at 04:45 PM
I find it hard to believe 2 individuals would do a crime like that and take off on foot.....that's all seems fishy

Geraldo Rivera was lambasted for suggesting that a hoodie was as culpable in the Martin death as the shooter, sorry folks but a black man wearing a hoodie and participating in an armed robbery does nothing but fan the fires of misunderstanding fueled by ignorance, bravado, misinformation, history, and even popular culture.
Collegenurse December 28, 2012 at 06:54 PM
Sayitsnotsojack and your point is?? No code please.
sayitsnotsojack December 28, 2012 at 07:29 PM
My point which you have missed while nursing is that thanks to these two bums, the next time a couple of black guys wearing hoodies which has become a symbol of someone being a threat do not be surprised if the convenience store clerk does not become uneasy even though there is not reason to be so.

Agreed, and that garbage was written by a reporter that has a NYC pistol permit..... Now that guy is not just a hypocrite he is what I call a "new kind of stupid"

Wow really now who has the biased paranoid profiling attitude? How would anyone any color or ethnicity react after being attacked at 1 in the morning? Sorry but once and for all if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck its most likely a duck. This is a world gone mad and everyone needs to be alert and some what suspicious and cautious it just might save a life. Nursing is my profession i think given your comments your the one still nursing.

The BP station is not in Montrose- that area is considered Crugers!

Let's ban hoodies

So if it looks like a nurse and waddles like a nurse, has a wet stain you must be a wet nurse, so bring it on.

Just a very sad, and yes, unfortunately more common crime that is echoed throughout all communities; most certainly this robbery is a sign of the times and a preview of the worse that is to come. Can't say I believe, in any way, that this crime was "inside" in any way. More likely, this new esablishment owned by the same owner of the mobils (rt.6 lake mohegan / rt. 202 ? Yorktown...just b4 Taconic Pkwy ent.) was cased by these two men for their planned robbery after the two noticed the existence of the new BP. This makes me believe the two (or at least one) are/is local enough to know the place was new and was comfortable enough with the neighborhood to flee on foot. Many changes are being made at all of this above mentioned owners' businesses to increase the security measures, significantly decrease police response time, and actually leave the decision in the hands of the employee as to whether or not the approaching person will or will not be allowed to enter via a perpetually locked door system that requires employee "buzzing" in each customer. With all that said and fact, no, despite any "fishy" feelings, this was not an inside job. Hoping and praying for GODspeed healing of the "pistol whipped" employee. Side note: didn't know the "tool" that wrote/published the "list" in the JN had a pistol permit in NYC!!! Thank you for this info .... hypocritical "tool"! Lastly, got a chuckle outta the "ban hoodies" comment ...

Thanks ED...It also might be a good idea to ban subway trains in NYC as there have quite a few subway train killings as of late

Grinding us down by adding a criminal element into our community and so much more: http://vimeo.com/52009124

Shar ... you are killing me today with jokes!! Lol! In all seriousness, sadly again, this very poorly informed woman allegedly hates all hindus because they "blew up 9/11"...yeah, I know ... someone tell this psycho that #1. Terrorists were of the islamic faith, not hindu, and 2. Regardless!! Even if this nut was better informed, it doesn't justify shoving someone into/under a subway! SMH! Now, if he was wearing a hoodie ....
