Two men robbed a Bronx T-Mobile store at gunpoint on Saturday afternoon and fled to Manhattan, where they rammed a police cruiser, sources said.
Thieves hit the store at 839 East 149th St. in the Woodstock neighborhood at 3:20 p.m., taking electronics, according to the NYPD.
They drove to Manhattan where they hit a police cruiser at 96th Street and Third Avenue before heading to FDR Drive, sources said.
They were stopped there by police, but got out of the car and ran before being caught, police said.
One of the suspected thieves threw an unknown object into the East River, which police said they were investigating.
The incident caused traffic to be saved on the FDR drive.
