Check-cashing business reopens after armed robbery

THE BRONX - A Bronx check-cashing store reopened today after a violent armored car robbery yesterday, where two suspects allegedly got away with $100,000.

According to the FBI, the robbers, one of whom was armed, followed a Rapid Armored guard making a cash delivery to David's Check Cashing on 3rd Avenue at around 8 a.m. The suspects demanded money and Maced the guard, but he managed to fire his gun as they were getting away.
