Rkov Didn't Close the Gate

Witnessed this scene on Grand Street on the Lower East Side the other night. Ventured closer to the Kosher Bagel place to eyeball the sign taped to the door. "Rkov! Close the gate please." (I am probably getting the name wrong. Looks like a backward R to me. But I've never heard of the name Rkov.) The roller shutter was up at 1 AM. Looks like Rkov forgot.

It's a Cyrillic letter. Transliterated: Yakov.

Fast response! Thanks. I had a suspicion.
