Now if you guys know me, you know how much I ADORE cupcakes…so this makes me even more mad than the average citizen! LOL! An alleged HIV-positive man in NYC held up Gigi’s Cupcakes late last week but not with a gun…with a syringe he claimed was filled with his AIDS-ridden blood!! WHOA!!
The robbery happened at about 10 a.m. last Thursday at Gigi’s Cupcakes at 5th & Grant St. Carissa, a manager, says she and another employee were in the back of the store when they heard someone come in through the front.
“(The man) immediately grabbed her by the arm and kind of forced her into a corner,” Carissa says. “He showed her the syringe. It was uncapped and (he said) it was full of his own AIDS blood. He said he was going to inject her if she didn’t open the register.”
When Katie, who didn’t have access to the register, asked Carissa to help open it the man became agitated at their slow pace.
“He just kept telling me to hurry,” Carissa says. Once the register was opened, the suspect grabbed approximately $300 in cash, and then left the store.”
