Three masked bandits with drawn i
revolvers entered the factory of Her-,
man Brand at 404 East Forty-eighth
street late yesterday afternoon, held
up thirteen workmen employed there
and robbed the foreman. Max Han&uer,
of about $1,000 pay money.
Hanauer told the police the robbers
had forced his men to kneel down with 1
their faces to the wall and threatened '
to "pump them full of lead" If theyi
turned their heads. Then they made i
him open the desk and hand over the
cash, which he had just drawn from j
the bank. As soon as they got the)
money they backed out of the room,
ran down stairs and escaped in an1
.automobile, which was waiting with
the motor running. The car was seen
to turn up First avenue in the direc
tion of the Queensboro Bridge.
The Job was clone by men who were
familiar with the place, the police say. I
