NEW YORK, NY – A man impersonating a cop held up a Broadway business but fled without success. Now, police have released video surveillance from the October 23rd attempted robbery, hoping the public can help them identify the suspect.

The incident happened inside 321 Broadway at around 7:25 pm when a man approached a clerk and demanded money after identifying himself as a police officer.

The suspect then reached over the counter to grab a bag, but was denied by the shopkeeper. He then fled the business, running through the glass front door, and shattering it.
