Three men cleaned up at a Manhattan bodega on Thanksgiving, robbing customers of $5,000 worth of cash and jewels as they held the 11 terrified victims at gunpoint, police said.

The trio entered the store on Eldridge St. near Hester St. in Chinatown at about 5 p.m. Thursday and pulled out two guns and a knife, authorities said.

They ordered 11 people two women and nine men inside the shop to get down on the ground, then demanded money and jewelry, police said.

The hostages were forced to hand over at least $5,000 in cash, and a gold necklace with a jade centerpiece.

The brazen thieves then fled without using their weapons, officials said.

None of the victims, who were between the ages of 38 and 65, were hurt in the holdup.

Police on Saturday released photos of the three men suspected of the Thanksgiving heist, showing one of the men waving a knife and another brandishing a gun.

No arrests have been made.
