Police are looking for two men that threatened a south Bronx check cashier with a phoney bomb earlier this month in the 43rd Precinct.

A 27-year-old employee was working at the Pay-O-Matic Check Cashing store at 1865 Bruckner Boulevard when two unidentified males passed a note demanding cash at about 5:25 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10, police say.

The men then threatened to use an explosive device they claimed was placed in a trash can if the employee did not comply.

That cashier refused and the men fled in unknown direction, the NYPD reported that there were no devices placed or found at the location and there were no injuries as a result of the robbery scheme.

Police released this photo of the other suspect.

Anyone with information in regards to the identities of the males is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
