A man walked into a Valley Stream deli Friday evening, simulating that he had a gun and demanded money from the register.

@jaimesumersille, you indicate in the article that the perpetrator was "simulating that he had a gun...". But as I finished the article I'm not clear on how we know there was no actual gun. I think it's better to assume the robber was actually carrying a gun unless there is evidence to the contrary.
