Police are looking for two men wanted in connection to an armed robbery last weekend in South Richmond Hill where they allegedly pistol whipped a taxi driver.

On Aug. 8 at about 2:25 a.m. the suspects — identified as two black men — approached a 50-year-old driver of a green cab at 126th Street and Liberty Avenue as he stepped out of his vehicle, cops said.

One of the suspects then took out a firearm, threw the driver to the ground, pistol whipped him and fled the scene with $70 and the victim’s credit cards, according to police.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
