The NYPD is looking for these allegedly fake cops who tried to rob a Queens man in late September.

Authorities are looking for two men who allegedly posed as police officers while attempting to rob a Queens home.

On Wednesday, September 26, around 1 p.m., a 49-year-old man, thinking that the suspects, who displayed shields and carried guns, were cops, let them into his home in the vicinity of Cypress Avenue, said the NYPD.

The police impersonators tried to rob the victim, but fled the location before taking any property.

No injuries were reported at the scene.

Suspect one was last seen wearing a gray zipper sweater, gray sweatshirt, dark jeans, black and gray baseball cap, black boots and black gloves. Suspect two was last seen wearing a light gray jacket, white shirt, blue jeans, black boots, black gloves, and a gray and black baseball cap. Both are described as as Hispanic males.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
