New York Police have searched for a man accused of robbing an East Village bodega in his best New Year’s clothes.

Investigators say the man, in a waistcoat and suit jacket, pointed a gun at the clerk of the Villager Smoke Shop on East 9th Street, near Avenue A.

Police say the armed suspect entered the store around 9:15 p.m. on New Years Day.

The man allegedly threatened to kill the employee before recovering $ 700 from the registry, along with the worker’s phone and AirPods.

Police said the suspect fled the store and the employee had not been reported any injuries.
