A robber with a sweet tooth and a sharp blade swiped 15 Hershey’s bars from a Bronx dollar store — then threatened a store manager who tried to stop him from getting away.

“I should cut you,” the crook said, brandishing a box cutter, during the robbery just at Family Dollars on the Cross Bronx Expressway near Gleason Ave. in Soundview at about 7:00 p.m. on August 26, 2017.

Cops released video and a photo of the suspect Friday and asked for the public’s help identifying him.

The suspect is described as white or Hispanic with a light complexion, about 20, 5-foot-10 and 130 pounds with long black hair in a pony-tail. He was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and a hoodie with the word “Harlem” on the front.
