The NYPD released surveillance footage of the suspects, showing one acting as a lookout while the other jumped a counter.

Police say the pair struck at all times of the day in prominently high traffic areas, including Chelsea, Midtown and the West Village. Among their targets so far are convenience stores, Duane Reade, Payless, and even on the subway.

The suspects are said to be violent, often punching their victims to get access to the registers.

Convenience store owner Omar Mozeb recounted his encounter with the pair to CBS 2's Kristine Thorne.

"He go overhead. He take the money. I move here like that. After that he go away. I don't know how much he take," he said. "Yeah I scared."

"He pushed me in my face," Mozeb added.
