Two armed robbers wanted for tying up employees at a Fresh Meadows RadioShack earlier this month are suspected of pulling off the same crime at a Springfield Gardens cellphone store on Tuesday, police said.

The pair, while wearing hoodies, walked into a Metro PCS located at 219-25 North Conduit Ave. at about 3:30 p.m. on July 28 and took out silver firearms, authorities said. They then took a 30-year-old female clerk and a 47-year-old male customer to the rear of the store, where they tied them up. The suspects then removed money from the cash register and several cellphones before fleeing on foot.

According to police, the same suspects walked into a RadioShack at a Fresh Meadows shopping center on July 10, where they also tied up the store’s employees at gunpoint.

After the suspects entered the 87-12 Horace Harding Expwy. store at about 10:25 a.m., one of them displayed a silver firearm while the second forcibly bound the two employees with duct tape and then removed about $400 and various electronics devices, authorities said. The suspects then fled.
