Video shows Bronx restaurant robbed twice in 3 hours, NYPD says

A Bronx restaurant was robbed twice in the same morning in June, according to the city police department.

Police said the first robber broke into Margherita's Mexican Cuisine on East 161st St. in Morrisania through a side window around 3:15 a.m. on June 25, stole $300 in cash from the register, and left.

On his way out, according to investigators, he left a side door unlocked, and two men walked in around 5:40 a.m. and stole an electric scooter.

Police said a third man they are looking for, who is not visible in the video above, was last seen wearing a fur-lined hooded sweater.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
