Three hooded assailants approached the 22-year-old clerk at the Metro PCS store at 555 Hempstead Turnpike, with one pointing at gun at him and demanding money from the cash register, police said. The clerk emptied the store’s register into the gunman’s backpack and the three men then fled southbound on Rockmart Avenue, police said.
