A Manhattan business owner is offering a reward after his store was robbed earlier this week.

Police say that three men robbed the BC Wireless store at 218 Madison Avenue at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon.

Mandeep Kumar—who owns the store—says the men stole $30,000 to $40,000 worth of merchandise and $9,000 in cash.

"He asked my, both brothers to lay down on the floor—'don't move, don't move.' And then another two guys had a big bags with them, black bags, and they just start picking up all the phones and they empty pretty much every single expensive phone from here and then they picked up $9,000 cash," Kumar said.

Kumar says one of the men also tried to rob the store at gunpoint two months ago.

He's offering a $1,000 dollar reward for information about the robbers.
